I like your leg. You seem to be keeping it steady and nice. Something I need training with a lot at the moment.
I also think you should look up more. It will help you straighten better and give better overall look as well. Also close your fingers and maybe raise up those hands a little bit. One thing you could do is wear gloves. It helped me with my hands a lot but it also depends on personal preferences.
Tanks, she has quite good jumping line in her blood and is very talented and soft in hands. Too bad I cannot use all that because I am still learning :( Maybe in future....
My leg just seems quiet, I hope to get a video this sunday... But thing is, that since I got these joint stirrups and shortened my leathers for a hole ( my knees hurt after riding in these leathers, but I got these jointed stirrups and it doesnt hurt aymore), I feel my legs are more solid and I have more control over them, which is nice.
I look down ALL THE TIME :( I check on wchich leg I rise, o which she canters on,..... I miss the trainer now so much :( But I believe it will get better once she trains me :)
I also do ride in gloves sometimes, but sometimes not...
depends on God-knows-what... the thing is I don't have anyproblem with her pulling to the reins, so I don't NEED them, as I did in first few weeks together with her. And I wear them when my nails get too long ( I got gel nails and they get kind of long for me to ride in a week before getting new ones, so I wear the gloves, so I don't break them)
And tanks for good compliments :)
