A couple from my ride today. Not terribly helpful for critiquing Bob as he was being an absolute horror head today, had to have the battle of you CAN accept a contact horse and you CAN move away laterally from a leg, it's not terrible hard!
So these are a few 'lucky' shots in between the tantrums.





Excuse the size of my backside in this one, it is the bane of my existence. **** genes, how can I have a flat stomach with a giant, flabby bum... when I exercise regularly and eat well.


And proof that I actually CAN sit a little bit of dirt - not that this was anything big, it was his 'warmup' for bringing out the big guns later in the piece... when I told the kid taking photo's to turn the camera off!!

I don't see big flabby bum - I see dressage rider with a sensitive seat =P

I know you said not to comment on your head being down, and I promise, this isn't exactly that. I think your head being down is coming from your neck. It almost looks like you are jutting your whole head forward IYKWIM? I would expect that the back of your head would be at least in line with your back, and it's forward of that. My advice - go get a massage and see if it is tension. If it's not, well, you got a massage at least lol.

You ride beautifully :)

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I wouldn't be surprised if it IS tension or something out somewhere Chiilaa. I've been sore lately, probably due to visit the chiro soon I guess. I got thrown really badly a few years ago, thrown off into a fence, horse fell and come down on top of me then got up and dragged me at a gallop across the arena. I tore ligaments and tendons in my hip and groin, and demolished the muscles up the right side of my back all the way up to my shoulder. Didn't help my shoulder which had already been dislocated on a few occasions so a little crooked already!

I've been stiff and sore lately up that side of my body but putting off going to the chiro again. Might have to do it and hope that it's whats putting my upper body out when I ride.
