    CRITIQUE ME AND MY ASH

    Hello

    Thought I might drop in a few of my horses for your veiwing I feel bad if I critique other peoples horses with out you seeing mine! I really do want critique, although I am defintally not a English rider, I ride stock work and Campdrafts, so I may have a different 'look' than other :P These pictures are at my first Dressage comp

    Use warming up before the draft:


    Still warming

    :P WOWY!! HE IS PRETTY NICE- well I assume the horse is a gelding?? Can I suggest that you lift your hands, sit more straighter and look up, it seems you are collapsing at the shoulder Other wise you and your horse are looking great!! Your horse is a stunner by the way

    I don't see what you're worried about, you both look great. The only thing I would suggest is perhaps lengthening your stirrups a hole so that you can stretch your leg down more.

    He looks like a lovely horse, I had a ASH as my previous show horse and you can't go wrong with them! Some people in the show ring really look down on the ASH but what they don't know can't hurt, my girl used to do really well but I never let on what her breeding was

    Thanks, yeah my father is very strict, his horses are only used for Campdrafting, not poffy dressage (thats what he sez) he doesn't understand that flatwork is the basic of anything..... I had to beg him to go to this (dressage comp) It wa only mum that said yes and pushed him to take me.
    My father shows his ASH, he does very well with them (Heaps of ribbons)
    **Thanks Aussie for critiquing me** I will work on that-PROMISE!!

    I see you live in SA, frog. I live in WA. I will try and lenghten my stirrups, thanks for the help = )

    ** Yeah I love ASH, they are so reliable and yeh - I love them**

    I don't know much about dressage but that is one shiny horse! Very pretty and refined.

    How did you go at the comp? Most of my friends are "social" eventers and have pretty much the same attitude as your grandfather towards dressage, yet they will still come to me for help when their dressage score is the only thing letting them down on the circuit!!

    I did a ASH challenge on my girl once, it was a lot of fun, but we couldn't quite work the cattle very well. My friends were laughing at me saying that the cattle would die of old age before they made it to market

    Your boy certainly looks like a very loved horse and you are doing a great job with him, my suggestion sneek in a few more dressage comps while the rellies aren't looking

    Good luck

    Well thanks guys!! We done alright - I suppose, out of 25 in my group I placed 6th. I was a lil dissapointed but for my first it was pretty good I think my father has settled alittle with me taking him out (the horse) but he isn't totally happy about it. Thanks frog, (i'll try and sneek out). Yeh my mann is fairly well looked after-and does he know it !lol. Thanks guys for your comments, although I don't think dressage is for me. They say I have the perment 'Campdraft hunch'

    Really nice except he looks a little on his forehand in the first picture but it could just be a tilt in the land and your pulling on his mouth a bit in the last

    But other than that really nice!!
