Halter/Bareback/Groundwork/Flatwork tomorrow

I'm going to go out after school to ride Blu. I'm going to ride strictly in halter and bareback. I plan on posting videos of Groundwork and Bareback stuff. I want to use a halter because 1. I don't have a Bosal 2. I want to test Boo. I want to work on Groundwork and Halter stuff because 1. Blu needs a tune up 2. I just found out that Halter Showmanship is a requirement to complete the horse 4-H program(even though I've never been informed of this/even though our leaders our horrible and our program is definitely downhill).

So, in the longrun, I was hoping you guys wouldn't mind critiquing. Heck, I don't even care if you say you don't like him. I want any and all thoughts. :)

I will also be posting pics of Blu with his "Equine Eyeliner".

I will be focusing on the following in halter:
Walk
Trot
Yield
Pivot
Head Carriage
Squaring
Etc.

I will be focusing on the following in halter riding bareback:
Walk
Jog/Trot
Head Carriage
"Suppleness"
Seat Control
Leg Pressure
One-Rein Stops
Turns
Flexing
Etc.

Please critique on the above and anything else you'd like. (Man, I feel professional.)

All my videos will be raw material. Be prepared. However, I will warm up and see how its going to to go before hand. (Lunging/Making sure he'll let me ride bareback since its been awhile/Etc.)

Thanks in advance. It means alot!

NOTE: Remember, I bought Blu as a 'broke' horse. Not a 'trained' one. All I've been doing with Blu has been training. Anything you say will either benefit training/riding or just help me improve. Sorry for such a long post. THANKS again!

WHATS REALITY?

I would also like you to critique my riding and skill if its not too much of a hassle. :) I've never really had lessons. Just 4-H. I rode bareback forever, six-nine months, when I first started 4-H. When saddles came, I was shocked out how much I disliked them. But now because I haven't ridden bareback much because I have been working on other things, I'm going back...Placed second in Bareback Equitation at age 10! Haha. Ribbon to prove it. :)
