I envy your posture lol

I would say your biggest weaknesses are arm position and that you seem to be ahead of him.

He makes a lovely English horse and looks happier lol. He seems to like the bit (how does he feel?) and looks to be relaxed and forward and moving into the bit whereas before he looked to be sucking back and like the bit was too much.

There's no reason you couldn't use that bit for western also. The curb gives him the "headset" but true collection is so much more and I prefer the way he looks in the more recent pictures and is a step forward towards true collection.

Thank you for the critique, yes my trainer said my weakest thing is arm position I am working on that, and he feels relaxed and happy its just a simple snaffle, I had a lesson today and am seeing a major improvement and he's starting to get his headset in a more natural way (: I will keep this forum updated (:

Yes would love the updates!! You two are a good match and have the right attitude. Whether you focus only on dressage going forward or go back to western what you learn will only help you (and I'm glad he likes the bit, it can be your "go to" for pretty much anything) and having fun is the most important thing.

Looking forward to updates :)

Sorry, that video is so "jumpy" I can not tell much from it.

Again, hard to tell, I see improvement, and think you guys look good, but hard to give a critique.

One thing I do see is how relaxed AND FORWARD he looks!!! And happy!! Awesome!!! I remember the previous video of attempting forward, he has come a long way! And I love the fact that he is relaxed and happy doing it. I think he was just stuck behind your leg and the bit was keeping him there, but this new horse - you can definitely work with that!!


Loving the updates!
