    Red face Critique my riding..

    NOTE: this is my new lease horse, and I have not ridden in about... 1 year prior to the few times I rode Candy Cane (the horse in the video) , so I may look a little choppy, I know that. But other then that, please feel free to say anything that will be constructive..

    You look tense; you're brancing against your stirrups which is putting your legs out in front of you. From their you're trying to correct yourself by leaning forward and rounding your shoulders. You need to sit back and roll your shoulders back, relax your legs and just let your heels absorb the shock. I would recommend if it's possible to try riding bareback for a couple rides so you don't depend on your stirrups for support, really use your body and core to keep yourself balanced nicely over your pony.
    Hope that helps some! :)

    You don't look terrible, just nervous. Chill homie. Its aaaalllll good.
    Sing a song while you ride. It'll loosen ya up a bit. Enjoy it.

    I agree with what everyone else said. I also noticed that your feet are sticking out, away from Candy's sides. That throws the rest of your seat off and makes it harder for your horse to get your leg aids. Bring your legs in around the horse so you can feel her better, and vice versa.

    Candy is adorable, btw. ;D She looks really smooth.

    Try relaxing your seat.

    I think you ride nicely! A few things though... loosen your reins. I noticed your horse is pulling her head down a bit. She's trying to tell you to soften your hands and give. Allow your balance to come from your seat, not your hands. Sink your weight way down into your heels and squeeze a bit with your calves -- your legs are a bit unsteady. Other than that, you are doing great!

    Good luck! =)

    Well the only problem with leg aids, is my horse is ALLLL voice commands, so NO leg is used. One cluck and she moves right off my voice. Its REALLY nice!
