I've only been riding for about 1.5 years so I'm definitely a beginner. I currently ride once a week, although I'm looking to upgrade that starting next week. I have few horsey friends, so I don't get much critique except from my coach. Here's some pictures from last year and this year. Could I get some advice in terms of how I've improved and what else I could improve?
In the first set of pictures, this was my 2nd lesson. The last time I'd ridden before this lesson was about 6 years back when I did a crash course on my friends horse (about 8-10 rides). This was Oct.2010.
The second set is after about a year of riding and a new barn. The horse is super smart and only goes if you can make him, so he sometimes requires a lot of leg. The last picture is the canter. This was June 2011.
What do you think? I know I suck quite badly, but other then that?
