You look like you're posting straight up like you would in saddleseat to me. For hunt seat, aren't you supposed to lean a bit more forward? If I'm completely wrong, I'm sorry. I haven't ridden hunt seat in FoReVeR

The first part: someone is lounging you so don't worry about that outside hand steering you are flopping that outside hand around and it isn't cute haha also try to turn those toes a little more forward. Your heels are nice and your posture is great too!

At about 1:40 your sturrups look really un even ... also I think they are too long.

Remember to keep your shoulder, hip and ankle aligned.

How long have you been riding ... looks like you are coming along

Spirit: if you are actually jumping a course and advanced then yes but in the phases she is at she should have a nice tall posture

I was told to use my my outside reign because my horse has picked up some bad habits of coming in to my trainer from people not being through with her and it a safe feeling for her to be close to my trainer! I was working with her on that and she was doing great!

I think I have a habit of leaning to one side!

Also what do you mean so try to turn those toes a little more forward?

Your doing really good, but your on the wrong diagonal and you need to keep your hands towards yourself more, so you have a more even contact on the riens :)
Your right, you are leaning inwards on the turns, so focus on keeping your weight central and your shoulders and hips square, also don't force your heels down too far as if you relax them slightly, your whole position will be more relaxed and comfortable :)
Good job tho x

Your trainer should have a lounge wip then, it is hard to really learn and utilize being lounged when you are having to worry about where the horse is going ... when I rode in college we were on the lounge line for the first 2-3 months so that we got a good solid core (some days we had all your normal tack, some days we had no stirrups, some days one stirrup and some days no tack at all haha)

About the toes- notice that in some of the pics your toes are pointing out rather then forward, they should be for forward then pointing out to the sides. The first pic I attached is of toes out (wrong) and the second it toes forward (right)... let me know if you have any questions.

You look great for only riding a year. Keep up the good work!
