Yes, she looks a lot younger than 24!!!

Nice riding! :)

The two main things that I noticed was that your heels should be down a little more. This will help you with balance. I good way to get your heels in the right position is to go into 2 point (half seat) position and when you sit, keep that same stretch in your heel. The other thing is that you should try to keep your head up more.

Other then that, you are very good for only your 5th lesson!

i havent read everybodies comments so sorry if i repeat anything, well you are doing well for your 5th lesson .. you sit on you bottom rather than tucking it under you .. this will fix your back and you need to bend your elbows and shorten your reins abit and bring your legs back abit so your shoulders , hips and heels are in a straight line but that will come in time :)

good luck and keep us posted !

Yeah, I'm not used to having constant pressure on reins, I've always been told to keep them relaxed (western I guess?). So, when I have to keep pressure on them I feel like I'm dragging on her mouth. I'll try to remember everyones advice and put it to use this Saturday. =D

Very nice! I agree with one poster about your head and looking down. As one of my riding instructers told me:"watch the country you will cover, not the country you are covering".

btw Maroni looks fabu for 24! She is quite the looker! I would imagine in would be hard not to be spell bound by her!!
