Could be wrong, the video quality made it hard to see it
lol why would my trainer annoy you? There is one trainer around me who I was considering taking lessons from and I decided against it because of how she talked, I watched her teach one and she baby talked to you the whole lesson. It would have drove me insane! This trainer is normally pretty quite, she was pretty excited that I made it 3 laps around when normally I have trouble getting 1 lap. My rein contact could probably be better, I'm still not completely secure at the canter so if I lose my balance the slightest bit and put pressure on the reins she will stop(as she should
) so I figured a little less contact would help eliminate that problem until I get better.

As for dirty breeches, you would cringe to see mine.
I guess it's time to saddle shop once again
I do really like this saddle tho! Maybe I can trade it for the same kind in a 17". I'm only 5'4 but I've been told I have a longish femur. I'm hoping to reduce the size of the but
I've lost 9lbs since June
