Critique on my hippodroming video please

Hey guys,

I am knew here and I love it already. I perform on a professional rodeo drill team called the Ohio Top Hands. I am one of their trick riders for parades and soon performances. I know the lighting isn't very good but it was the only one I have so far. This one is about a year old now so don't be too harsh.

What does Ginger say? In Your profile picture you need to stand up straighter. You look hunched over. Point your toes down and don't lock your knees. Remember you will be a little ahead of the motion, let the momentum push you. Keep that back strait. Don't hunch you shoulder's so much. Good luck

You need to look up, not down at your horse.Also, straighten up your back.

I've never seen it done like that? The people at Dixie, when they did the hippidrome, they nearly had their legs straight and weren't holding the reins.

Here is Christine doing it.

No critique from me, I just want to say that you are a braver woman than I. Give me a broncy horse any day but don't ask me to stand up while my broke horse lopes LOL. I'm scared of heights and I don't trust my balance.

Smrobs I am right there with you! I think its really cool, but nothing I would ever do. Too scared!

But I did want to point out this thread is from 2007.

Ouch, no one replied to her since '07? LOL

Honesty, its super easy. I used to ride for Ginger on the Top Hands, and I was a hippodrome rider.Its not nearly as scary as it looks! Lol

Holy cow!!! I didn't even look at the date. It just popped up on my "new posts" and I wondered what it was all about. Dang.
