A little backgrownd: started riding Chase last november had to have the winter off tho so really started "traning " in april! :) we worked really hard to get were we are and im soo proud of him! so if you guys would be so kind to critic my horse and me please we would appreciate it :) ... my mane problem lol is i get nervous and get tense or i comcentrate to much on what my horse is doing and getting him in a good frame and all that that my own position suffers from it! :) We have plenty of room to improve so shoot !!!

I have nothing really to say about your basic Dressage position as it is very good for being in a forward flapped saddle. You are clearly riding the horse forward to the bridle, but be careful you also need to balance him with his forehand up - he is diving down and behind the contact. This takes lots of transitions and a more effective half halt with your body back and a strong core.
I would also love to see you with some gloves on in the Dressage just to finish the picture.

You two look very harmonious, good luck!

I'm not much for critique, but I love your horse! He is gorgeous =) I also really like your saddle! What is it?

you horse has a very nice jump... and although you are a wee bit ahead of the motion, your heels are down and your release looks sufficient. Glad to see you're looking up and ahead at your next fence in your jump shots.
Nice riding!

Is that a Thorowgood saddle? Your dressage looks very nice. Wish my horse would move along that nicely during his tests. I agree with Anebel. Very nice dressage position. How did you score?
