Critique of my lesson!

Hey guys! So I got my first lesson w my new trainer Ralph Hill and heres some videos of that lesson, im so excited we did great and we even jumped a little and I feel my confidence coming back as its been over a year since I last jumped! And about 6 years since my last lesson and we had only been back to riding for about 2 weeks before this lesson. Due to some injuries, I havent ridden since last Nov. Feel free to critque but we pretty much know where we need improvement and will be working on it!

Ps. Sorry for all the small videos- Boyfriend didnt really listen to my instructions... lol

Trotting



Cantering



Jumping

wow... thanks Spyder... as I said this was our very first lesson in a LONG while and he was trying to get him to relax which is one of Peteys biggest issues.

Sometimes a trainer concentrates on one thing that they find most important, and then when that's settled, they move on to another issue. It's easier for the rider if they don't have to work with all their horse's issues all at once.

At first I thought those were all pictures, I was like " does she really expect anything from this or...." then I clicked them and felt a little stupid. Your trainer sounds amazing and your lower leg is nice.

Hey! Your seat when you ride is really straight and the horse you rode has good confirmation. Try and make your leg less bashy x

Hope my answer helped, Sophie xxxxx
