Critique My Bareback Riding...

Hey guys! So the past month I've been working a lot on all my bareback stuff (when the arena isn't frozen, that is) and I finally got a video of it!
Could you guys please critique my bareback a bit? I know the vid is fairly bad quality and it's sorta short, sorry bout that. If you go to full screen it's a bit easier to see.
Anyways, thanks!

you guys look awesome. Remember to relax and breathe, especially when cantering. I always say "keep your buttcrack aligned with the horses spine" hahaha. It works. I love riding bareback. Its so freeing! I hope you decide to go further in your bareback riding. It seems you have an awesome horse, too!

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

^^Thanks :) haha yeah I sorta keep forgetting my breathing :p That was my...I think fourth time cantering bareback? Something like that :) It's a lot easier than trotting, that's for sure!
Yeah, I was planning for a while that I wanted to learn to ride bareback after watching my friend do close to everything bareback.
Thank you, again, yes she's a great horse :)

Aw, that's pretty good!! :) Try to stay upright in canter though - you kinda bob forward a bit (I tend to do that sometimes too :/ )
Nice pony though - now for some bareback JUMPING!! :P
I love bareback - my riding is 90% bareback, 10% saddled, lol :)

Is that a curb bit or a hackamore? It's kind of hard to tell. If it's a curb, you really should be neck reining and staying out of her face.

You look pretty good; just try to relax some and loosen up.

haha yeah I do that :p
Actually I jumped bareback before I cantered :p Just like trotted slowly up to a small jump and she took one or two canter paces after wards and went back to a trot haha
Yeah my friend's like that, she does almost all bareback riding haha

It's a curb. Currently other than my english bridle's bit which is half put together I only have one bit, I know I need to get a new one, I'm planning to. Cheyenne barely know how to neck rein, she's not really responsive that way, but I should probably start working with her on that again for when shows come back.
Thanks :)
