Me and Bru:

And Fi from a little open hunter show. Photos copyright to Jump the Moon photo so just links. I'm noticing I'm taking my knee off...:

^This last one you can really tell I'm taking my knee off... not really sure why. I know I'm not gripping with the back of my calf, despite my turned out toes - that's my natural foot conformation. Yes, I have duck feet xD Still not sure why my knee is flapping in the wind though...

Going to be a difficult photo to critique from that angle. No critique from me but you have an absolutely adorable little pony. Obviously tries so hard. Adorable :D

M2G: I was hoping the photos from the show were going to be a at a better angle but sadly no :\ They are at a slightly better angle than the one on Brutus though.

sillybunny: He is dangling one leg but his knees are very tight and even and he's rounding through his neck and back so I don't really think its an issue. But I'll keep an eye out and if it starts to be a habit I'll try and fix it.

Cute horse/pony! Only thing I really noticed was stretch your hands up his neck a bit further, don't put to much pressure on your hands though since this will put weight on his neck.

I'm doing a short release, so IMO the hands are in the appropriate area for a short crest release. Trying to get in the groove of doing an automatic with him but it is a lot harder than with Fiona as he is a lot thrustier and has a lot more bascule.

Anyone have any comments for the other pictures? The ones I linked too...

OMG, your pony is ADORABLE! Such a cute jump!

I would lower your upper body more (there's a lot of space between you and his neck and withers) and maybe release a teeny weeny bit more with your hands.
