    I just wanted to say that you look like you are giving your girls a beautiful ride, both horses look relaxed and happy and your hands are soft and elastic. I can't believe the change in only a year, you should hang on to that trainer she sounds like a keeper!

    Keep doin what you're doin I say!
    Thank you so much, Sarah!

    BTW I ride in my neighbor's ring so its definitely a compliment to her place. She's very kind to let me use it (she's a dressage rider with 20+ years of experience, and she has a project horse (OTTB) as well she's working with (although she's WAY ahead of me in his training )).

    I think I may look into some lessons, always good to expand your horizons. Though I'm quite certain my 80 year old, very anti-english, very pro-cowboy gpa would cry if he got the journal with me on the cover in breeches!

    I think you have made huge improvements. Just a bit more roll shoulders back. There's a mild feeling that you are curling over, which is part of the chair seat that Kayty saw (me too). I would suggest raising your stirrups ONE notch. You don't seem to really be carrying your weight down your leg and THROUGH the stirrup.
    Your seat improvement in less than one year is phenomenal!!!!

    Than you, tiny! Yes, I know I lean forward sometime, so have to constantly monitor myself (which I don't sometime ). And yes, I probably should of raise stirrups: that was my first time in new tall boots, my usual riding boots have much thicker bottom (and the length is adjusted to them). Something to keep in mind next time I'll wear tall ones!
