Lessons with Spanky

Here are some pictures from my last two lessons. This is the third time I've been on a horse since my accident and I am slowly gaining my confidence back. I tried to remember to look up more but I was working my diagonals so my instructor would want me to look down often to see if I was on the right diagonal.

Here is the link to my previous thread so hopefully I made some improvement but if not there is always next time!

Now for some pictures...

Pole bending at a trot

Trotting over cross rails


And some random shots...

I am in mid-blink but it is a good picture of Spanky.

You look good! Try not to lean so much when you turn, but otherwise you look great. Cute horse too, is he yours?

Oh, I wish Spanky was my horse. He is one of the many horses my instructor has. He is such a great boy.

Thanks for the critique! I will try at my next lesson to not lean when I turn.

Great work.
Don't worry, I lean forward too :)
