I have to say barnbum, I have never seen a more suitable horse/rider pair
Now for my critique:
I like to see a little more softness in the hips. Bend more. IMO, your not in enough of a "jump position." Shoulders a bit stiff, hands a bit wide and stirrups a bit short for my taste Everything else looks GREAT!
Okay - I am kinda crabby today, so sorry about the harshness of my remarks, but hey...you asked for it.
For God's sake - get your eyes UP! I can see you looking off to the side checking to see if there is a McDonalds down the road.
Your clip job on the side of his neck is a piece of sh*t. Get a groom.
I am fairly certain your a$$ isn't even out of the saddle. That might help when jumping.
And I don't mean to be politically incorrect, but if you really care about yourself and your horse as athletes, you REALLY should get to the gym and drop those extra pounds or you are never going to place in the ribbons.
P.S. And get black gloves. Much more flattering to your enormous marshmallow hands.
trakegirl, it was a burger king! I could smell their charbroiled goodness! and saddle? what saddle? funny thing I went for a hack one day and when I got back to the stable and rolled off the saddle was not there?! the girth was strangely protruding from behind me, I just figured I'd take advantage and use it to strap myself to mr. pony pone. Besides bareback riding will help build up my legs right? P.S. in case any of you see her, I'm missing my Chihuahua also
