    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.

    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!

    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? :)
