Sliding Stops Critique

(Pictures from Google Images -click on picture to see larger image)
Which is best ... and why?
Which is the worst and why?
Which ones will score the same marks as each other?
Why are the riders coming out of the seat in pictures 1, 3 and 4?

  1. Well I would say that the best one is the last one. He looks soft,round and in the right frame for stopping. The worst one I think is the second last one (pinto). I think the ones that may score the same are the second photo and the last photo.
    I'm super new to this so I'm not sure why they are coming out of the saddle, but I would think it is because they are not at all balanced and don't look at all in sync with their horses.
