    Red face Can Someone Please Critique???

    Can someone please critique me riding my friend's saddlebred Dancer? Here are some pictures: (sorry, I look ******ed )

    My butt looks way to far back in this one . . .

    While we were cantering in the pasture, my legs got SO far forward! Omg, I'm embarrassed to show this picture cause it's so bad and I don't even know how it happened . . .

    Wait, here's one more so you can see me post. Does my posting look weird to you guys? Is it too straight up? I've never acctually had a Saddleseat lesson, my friend kinda taught me and all she told me was that Saddleseat riders post straight up.

    All I can say is I LOVVE Dancer...if she disappears, I didn't do it!!!

    I think the reason you had a hard time maintaining a decent seat is because the saddle is WAY big for you...If you ride again, I would see if you can use a different saddle, and I bet you wouldn't have the issues you experienced here

    Yeah, if that's a saddleseat saddle, there's pretty much no chance you're going to get your legs under you. Pretty horse.

    She's gorgeous! I don't know a thing about saddleseat, so I'm no help - other than saying Dancer's pretty!

    I know nothing of saddleseat but it looks to me that you are sitting on you pockets to much to be able to bring your legs back in the saddle

    You look good! Saddleseat is not made for getting your legs underneath you, but a smaller saddle should help with the canter :-D

    I don't know a whole lot about saddleseat but I found some pictures because I know that in saddleseat they do ride with their feet more in front of them. In comparison you need to bring your hands up more. I haven't found any pictures at the canter to know what you are to look like for that.

    I love her! I want her! She is mine now, your friend doesn't have a horse anymore...

    I love the look of her canter. She is so alert and alive. I can't see any possible thing wrong with her.

    Don't ask me about saddle seat riding...I'm clueless with that type of thing...LOL

    As mentioned before, you need a smaller saddle to get the right position.
    Pick your hands up, pull your legs back and put your heels down. Posting should be more up- down than forward- backward, but not exactly straight up and down.
