Yesterday he settled in so well that we decided he'd be up for a ride.
He was quite excitable and VERY forward, even more so than usual which is saying something, but otherwise perfect. I on the other hand was less than perfect. I'm very out of riding shape and there are some things that I really need to work on. These probably aren't the best to critique since this is only my third ride on him and he was so full of himself that day but whatever, ha ha.
Things I see:
- My stirrups are too short for flat work. They need to come down some.
- I'm siting too far back in my saddle. It fits fine, it's me. Maybe because of my stirrups?
- My leg is not underneath me.
- Zeus is powerhousing around. I need to sit up on my butt and bring him back to me.
Have a go at us please.
And one canter at a ridiculous angle.
Thanks in advance!
I'll be updating pretty frequently so we'll see how much I improve once I find a trainer, which should be soon!
