Smile Critique me practicing my dressage test.

Hey guys,

I would really appreciate some advice and telling me what I can improve and what I can do to help Curly improve. Im doing a grade 4 pony club dressage test (im not great but im trying!)

I am not great at critiquing myself but I think my hands need to be quieter at a trot.
I know she isnt 'on the bit' but we are developing it slowly, building up all our muscles she is starting to really do it at a walk in the last few rides and has been holding it for a few strides at a time.

Thanks in advance :)

Now i'm not all that great on critiquing, but since no one else has, here we go :)


I did notice that your hands should be a little quieter, like you mentioned in your first post. Also, your arms sometimes look a little stiff sometimes and too far away from your body. Try and focus on your elbows being close to your body :) make sure if you're bringing them forward to pick up rein contact, to make your elbows hug your body again
Apart from this, You and Curly are looking great! What a good team :)
Anyone else, feel free to add on to this.

You guys look great!

The only thing I would change is you don't really prepare your horse for the turns.. so a few of them were a bit odd. Ways you could help.. half halts, support that outside rein and inside leg as well as controlling those seat bones. Also the posting looked a little BIG for her trot. Let her lift you.. and if you want a bigger trot, use more leg.

But wooo you go girl! That was awesome! I haven't tried the dressage test.. it's a lot to remember!

Only things I noticed were your hands (but you're already aware) and at 2.30 in the video you were posting on the wrong diagonal (I don't know if this was intentionally though?)
