Since selling Leia, I've been able to get back into lessons and am now apart of a riding team. I only ride once a week, but I think I've lost a lof of my bad habits.
I tend to get REALLY nervous riding new horses, and both these horses were ones I'd never ridden before.
Vick (bay dutch warmblood) is a horse that if you ride incorrectly, he gets VERY forward, and that made me nervous. If you pull, he pulls and gets strong. I'd seen it happen and really didn't want it to happen to me. My trainer told me to sit deep, and ride mainly seat and leg, keep light but steady contact, so that's what I did. Ignore my mom talking, and also sorry - she doesn't know how to zoom.
And Tux is a new horse that I'd never seen before riding him. I didn't know what to expect or how to ride him. He is very wiggly and I had to REALLY keep him in between me, or he felt like he'd run out. He didnt like to bend around the last turn and tried to drift towards the group. Excuse my 'chasing' him into the canter at the last, I have a horrible habit of doing that..
Critique what you can, I know they aren't the best quality, but it's all I have.
