How's my Equitation?

hahaha so I went to Saratoga this summer for the Travers (met a bunch of jocks, Rachel Alexandra and my fave racehorse atm Custom for Carlos) and my friend took me to Racing Museum and I got to ride the EQUICIZER! Hahaha

You have to properly suit up, good thing I was wearing my jod boots



So how's my "Jock" Equitation? ;)





It was a lot harder then I thought it would be, major cramps in the glutes.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

You actually look pretty good, atleast from what I can tell

I think you need to stretch over the withers more with your upper body/hips. They are always a little more forward to help them balance on those HUGE strides. You look kinda like a steeplechaser but hey, I couldn't even get into that position let alone hold it long enough to get a picture!! So kudos to you and it looks like fun!

So much fun yea I tried crouching smaller but it really really really cramps your glutes! I give major props to all Jocks/Exercise Riders out there!

Haha that looks like fun! I went to that museum once but the Equicizer was broken or something, nobody was allowed on. Lol

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

Your horse wasn't listening to you. His ears are forward and he looks a little stiff

Your right, he was very stiff and wouldn't pull up when I asked him to, know a good trainer I can send him to? :)
