    Critique my riding? :)

    I went to try out a horse to buy yesterday and the friend that went with me got some pics. Opinions on the horse are appreciated as he is still under consideration, but mostly I'm curious to see what you think of me!
    This is only my second ride after a 3 year hiatus :/
    I have 2 pics and a video, I'm on a phone to post so I'm going to do them seperately..

    And the video. I haven't been able to view it yet as my
    Phone doesn't want to play it so let me know if it doesn't work! :)

    The video is private.

    Okay, thanks. Ignore that post then.

    Love that first pic! He's using all the right muscles, looks great. The only thing I see is that he has a rather steep angle in his croup area, behind the hunter's bump. I'm not sure how that would affect him in the whole grand scheme of things. It's a question to ask at a vet check.

    Thanks! Do you think his age has anything to do with that?
    He's a 14 yr old OTTB

    No, that angle is there (or not) when they're born. If he's already 14 and having no problems, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I can't really critique the horse too much, but as for you, straighten up a little bit and keep the heels down more. The horse looks like he's a little downhill in the second picture but I think its only the angle of it. Not much more to add.

    The only thing I have to say is that it looks like your hands are a smidge low, and your foot is almost "homed" in the stirrup(1st pic), making it parallel to the ground, instead of heel down.

    You look good on him though!
