I am an adult re-rider so be kind ;) Please note my teacher had me working on trying to turn him by focusing on my shoulders turning to then naturally move my leg, etc. - when I turn my shoulders he bends way better with little to no reins - so in the trot videos I look a bit discombulated. I am looking for opinions on his movement - how does he move, does he have hunter or dressage potential? Do you see any offness. It was very windy and cold, and he is older - I had a tough time keeping him at gait for now - some days he is VERY forward, especially in an indoor but this day I had a tough time keeping him forward hence all the leg and pumping action - my crop was put away at the time due to the exercises we were doing. That's all I'll say for now and that he is FAB on trails. He is an Appy by the way, super safe and quiet abd he is a saint, but he can really have get up and go.
I know I need to QUIET my upper body and my canter needs alot of work. Please ignore the video titles as they don't match the riding and direction we are going osmetimes, and turn your volume down - it's pretty windy!
Would love any and all thoughts on how he uses his body, his movement, head, etc. and me! Thanks!
