    You and horse look nice. On some pics (they are too small so sorry if that's not what I see) your leg looks too far forward. It's kinda funny that you couldn't take a lesson in dressage barn. Could you look for the different trainer or something may be?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Actually, I was planning on taking lessons there, but there were some issues with the barn owner/manager so I packed up and moved out. I'm looking at other barns at the moment but haven't decided yet ;) I'm too picky for my own good! Lol

    Lmao! My coach was yelling at me to "get my a$$ out of the saddle" while posting, I was like "omg dude wth I am TRYING to get my azz out of the saddle LOL!"

    It's easier now lol, but yeah you need to "thrust" your pelvis out and up while posting, elongate that leg and get it under you (2 point pos. Will help you with that). I got lucky in the leg and hands dept. I need to concentrate on my backside while posting Good luck^^

    You are probably going to kill me for saying this, but I think that saddle is much too large for you. At least the flaps are so long that they come to a very low place on your calf and might really be interfering with your ability to keep you leg in the right kplace and have it be affective on the horse.

    You will ride in a dressage saddle not so different from how you should ride in a western saddle. Leg pretty long, though not as long, straight down and riding more from the seatbone than the knee/thigh.

    As for learning the sitting trot, doing it without stirrups is a good way to build this skill. It's often easier w/o stirrups than with.

    Tiny, I am seriously considering getting the flaps shortened a few inches! I really like the way it fits my horse so hopefully I can find a way to do this without breaking the bank ;)
