thank you i know my instructor Jenny metcalf is always telling me about my leg it just wont stay forward!!!

You look pretty good on the top half of your body, but you need to bring your leg forward. I have the same problem as you sometimes no matter what I do my legs will fly back, and sometimes they won't move at all. A good exercise that can help your legs is to jump without stirrups. It causes you to think more about your legs.

Not bad bad Proevnter you look very neat and your ponies jump well

keep it up

I know whatcha mean about the legs not staying forward. It helps to do TONS of flatwork with and without stirrups to anchor your legs in place. Once your leg is solid on the flat, move on to smaller fences with and without stirrups, and keep moving up.

I love the third picture, that pony looks like he's attacking the jump :D

Your sholders look a little tense and release a little more otherwise you look old are you? I'm almost thirteen and i jump maybe three six or a little higher
