first time trotting in english...

So I ride western and the most I have done of engligh is walk on an old horse, focusing more on making him go slow down hills than actually riding. So I decided that instead of riding western this weekend on my friends horse, I rode english! Thus it is my first time trotting and posting in english.

I will have a movie to go along with the pictures soon but for now here are the pics! Critique away!

Your hands are really good! Usually people tend to lean on them.

Your legs have slipped forward though, which is probably due to a few things.

I'm going to attach some videos that are helpful.

Then these I found recently and LOVE

You are NEVER going to want to post in a western saddle ever again. Nice seat.

^^ thanks, but I am western at heart I love western saddles, the horn is both your friend and enemy :) the horse put her head down and I thought I was going to slide down the neck! There was no horn to stop me!

I wen on a double bareback with my friend the next day :) but I really don't do BB to often because that horses withers and back bone makes it feel like you are sitting on a fence- with a BB pad :O

This is the video to go along with it which will probably give more room for critique!
