I would like an honest but kind critique! This was our 2nd open show and we placed 1st. I want to know what you think about my position and how we look overall. Oh and it was a fun open show on St. Patricks day. That is why I am in green lol. I know my hands are in strange positions and my legs are floppy but I kind of have no muscle in my legs and am working on it! . I also realize he falls on his forehand and am planning to ask my instructor what would help him. I haven't been taking lessons but once a week for about 3 weeks. I won't be able to go more often until I get my own trailer. I have never really had formal lessons until 3 weeks ago. I am planning on doing eventing and I have an interest in AHA sporthorse. zahir kr.jpg
Haha I know right? My feet were sliding forward like crazy. My lower leg is one of my biggest problems. It tends to kind of swing at the posting trot and my heels fail at the canter, therefore my feet go waaay forward. But believe it or not I am able to bring my feet back every once in a while at the canter and the trot. As soon as the weather actually decides whether it wants to stay warm or cold, I plan to be out there at least 4 times a week riding in twopoint and exercising. :p maybe I need to ride bareback Posted via Mobile Device
Unfortunately I have a very opposite problem...
My horse is pretty hot and reactive, so I tend to jam my heels down in a effort to stay on. This has caused me to have nasty ankle pain and i've bruised my shins from my leathers. A nice flexed ankle is best. One that simply serves as a shock absorber as well as an anchor for your base of support. It's sometimes easier said than done though. Haha!
