    Critique my riding?

    This is me riding my cousins 13.3hh fell pony, Im used to riding a 16hh TB so I feel I rode him really badly. Can you give me some critique please? Be as mean as you like :) heres a couple of videos, bareback & with saddle. & some printscreens incase you can't see the videos too well. Thanks! ^-^

    Well, first of all that horse is adorable!
    I haven't played the videos (I'm at work) but judging by the photos I can tell you this:

    -You seem like you have your weight sunk into your heels, very good!
    -I like where you're sitting (pelvic angles), you're seat is very good.
    -It seems like you have a chair seat in some of the photos, try to pull your leg back. Think about pointing your knee down, that should bring your lower leg back.
    -You're hands are in your lap... I have this problem too! Try to extend them and make yourself have a long arm, but be sure to keep your elbows nice and soft.

    Maybe others will have stuff to add, but over all you look really good! :)

    First and foremost, WANT! Oh my what a nice, uphill little Fell Pony.

    I think the chair seat in the sitting trot was likely due to the jumping saddle. Equitation is decent enough, now you just need to RIDE! He needs to be ridden with much more engagement. He's just kind of jig-jogging around with no real connection. I'm sure he can do it and really motor down. Was the footing a little wet? The ride just looked very conservative.

    Haha everyone wants him. I've already told my cousin I get first dibs on him if she ever sells. He's amazing lol & yeah the ground was slippery, it had been raining for days before that & was slightly raining that day aswell. Plus he's only just coming back into work as he wasnt ridden for about 5 / 6 months because of a serious breathing problem that cost my cousin around 2000 in vet bills. He had been on steriods for about a month before this & has just come off them so we're just taking it easy with him for now.
