First of all, before you watch the video, I know I am not that good of a rider. I am 100% self taught. I live in a place that is 200 miles from anywhere, and getting riding lessons are absolutely impossible. I consider myself good enough to not hurt my horse's back and mouth, and that's a start. I am going to move in a year, and have every intention of getting lessons the first chance I get. I'm not expecting you to tell me, I'm good, because I'm not. I'm just looking for constructive criticism.
What the hell! Why do you pull on your horses mouth like that? You shouldn't own a horse. Ever.
Easing up on the reins looks better and your horse will be easier to handle if you aren't constantly pulling on his mouth.
Same message, but the second one is what I'm looking for.
Anyways here is my most recent video (a few months ago, I've sold my horse since):
The issues I notice, is I should have my reins a bit tighter so they aren't flopping around everywhere. I should sway less in the canter, and not rise as high in the trot. My stirrups should probably be longer too. Most the time, my heel position is good, but there are a few parts that it was pretty bad.
Also, is there anything you like about my riding? I personally try to focus on my hands and legs staying quiet, so those are the things I am best at. Not trying to make excuses, but my horse was in a bad mood that day, and wanted to keep his head held high. My hands are usually a lot more quiet than that.
