Cool Critique Prince...

Hi guys.

This is Prince's first ride in an English saddle since November, so he may be a little rusty. PLEASE DO NOT CRITIQUE ME (the rider); I haven't really ridden at all lately, but he needed to training.

I have pictures and 1 video of his canter.

Halt:


Walk:



Trot:











(Yes I was at two-point; and attempting to turn.)

Canter:





Jumping pictures + video coming up.

First of all, I know you didn't want critique on your riding, but I don't think you woukd mind some positive feedback! You look really good, especially for not having ridden for a while! The only thing, though, is that you should tighten your helmet, because it looks very loose which is not safe.

You have a very cute pony, and well done that you can ride him in just a halter! He looks well balanced and you look secure on him, which probably means that he's a safe, reliable horse. Congratulations for trying new things (the English saddle) with him! I'd love to see him jump!

He has a cute little stride that's for sure! I would be careful overworking him until he packs on some groceries and some muscle as he seems a little thin and weak through his topline. Kudos to you for really padding his back up though! And I agree that you don't look like you haven't ridden in a while. I'm also guessing he is an older guy from the face and general condition coming out of winter. If that's the case it does take time to build weight and mucle back up if they've been off for the winter. He's a cutie and seems like a very sweet and reliable ride. Have fun conditioning him!

Thank you! My hair was put up too high, so that's why the helmet looked so yucky. Thanks again, I ride him bareback almost daily, and he come a long way since last April (when I got him). Jumping pics in next post!

Actually he's fairly young. Turning 10 this year. I tried not to overwork him, but we didn't do much (in my opinion); just a 45 minute work-out + some things on the ground. Would that be pushing it?

Not much of a jump, but I wanted to start off small since this was our first ride.

Jumping in a head coller!! Braver than me!! Would have no brakes he looks really sweet could do with more muscle on his hindquarters which will come from work to build it up

He's a cutie! I agree with the muscling, and after he packs some on I think he'll look even better! I'm useless critiqueing English so I won't post regarding that
