Here are a few vid stills from Feb 18, 2009. This was my first ride in over 2 weeks due to a farrier cutting his feet too short. He is still striding short, but otherwise sound.
Self-critique under the pictures.
Could step up more. My leg needs to come back a smidge. Reins are long because I was just coming back from a loose rein. Elbows need to be bent.
Need to straighten out my back. Shorten rein and bend elbow. Heel down and back a bit. Again, Denny needs to stride out; but, again, he was still a bit tender.
Straighten out my back, elbows bent, wrist straight. Heel down and back.
All of the above. My rein was long because I was coming back from a loose rein.
Again, all the above.
