I'll stick my neck out again x)
Ok.. these first pictures..
I like his frame and he felt somewhat relaxed.. but the gait.. it's pretty much stepping pace, isn't it? :/ Or is it the face of the step that confuses me, the hindleg being most in action instead of the front? In any case, it's too pacey, isn't it?
It felt pretty smooth.
And this was.. not comfortable at all. It must have been taken when he was that awfully bouncy, if nothing else it looks like it when I'm boncing all over his back in the picture, and my..err..screwed up face wen I want him to stop. x)
Way to diagonal, isn't it? Looks pretty much like an utterly bad trot to me.. :(
Felt like it too.
I'm still leaning a bit forward, but I tried to remember to tuck my butt under me.. and concidering I'm an awfully sway-backed person, it looks like I did it here too.. any comment on me? :S I don't have a saddle yet, it's still broken. And the one I have puts me in a horrible posture.
I was way too tensed up when riding today, wanting so badly to get that great gait he has and being all disappointed and annoyed when not only didn't I get it, but he acted up like he never uses to do normally and refused to cooperate, give to the rein or anything (which is also why I havn't given him the rein back, and o the pictures I did he's just.. horrible all over and me too, so..
) But these were taken at the few minutes he felt somewhat decent to ride at least,.. and when I now forced my friend to take pictures and all that I felt I should show them as well.. >_>
