Until 2/2011 I rode western. When I bought Amber in 10/2011 she was an ex-broodmare with 60 days barrel training. I had just finished a 4 year lease during which time I had no formal lessons. Amber and I have had lots of problems but I feel we've come a long way. Below I attached a video and two pictures. The pictures are older and for reference, so please do not critique them, just the video. In the video Amber was misbehaving a bit, especially to the left so I started riding worse when we turned to track left. Please do not critique Amber, usually she carries herself nicer than she was today.
