Critique Junior?
 
This is my 21 year old Canadian TB. He has been doing pretty good, besides the fact that he is stressed like mad due to Bear leaving yesterday. Please critique both of us unless stated otherwise.

This is a fail... I just couldn't stay with him up this. He saved me rump though :)

Junior is a seasoned eventer that has been out of the loop for a while now... I took him XC schooling about 9 months ago and he was amazing for it. He hasn't been being ridden enough recently, but will be in more work in the near future. :)

In your Bio for him it says you sold him? But anyways he is really cute

For 21, he looks fabulous.

You look like a fairly good rider. The first jumping photo you're out of the saddle an ideal amount with an auto release (though that could be further forward a smidge) looking where you are going.

I don't have a lot of experience with banks so I'll leave that to someone else.

One fault I see is that you leave your hands open. A lot of people think that creates a soft hand, but it actually does the opposite.
