Critique Our Riding

Hey Guys,

Could you please critique Chinga and I. Some of it is from our lesson and some of its from our Sporting Comp. I know at the lesson my heels are bad, they did improve but still that is something I need to work on. Please be nice but pull us to peices. Yes and at the lesson the canter was shocking . .. gee did we get to do that again. Critique Away

Thanks

Sir Success. Eventer.

It's not much, but I'd like to see you get your hands out of your lap (and they may be a bit "piano hand-y") and put a bit more bend in your elbow. Also, like you said, sink your weight into your heels a bit.

Otherwise, you look pretty good. :)

Thanks, he was being a pain and decided leg wasn't fun. But that was something we worked on this morning. I kept opening my hands, it was driving me and my trainer insaine.

he doesnt look too bad. but he dosent look like hes really under you. looks like you guys are just going along. In some parts it looks like you guys need to work on bending.

I have this problem with my mare. she kind of sets her own pace. I just do lots of half haults (more with my abs and body, then hands.)
