Hmm, well, you look nice, except for your rump never see's the saddle, your always perched up. |
Now I can see that you probably have a nice bond, trust, and he has good training and all, but if that horse were to stop, you could very quickly be severely injured.
Your back is VERY perched, make it straight up and down, not your rump a mile past your lower back. Just as JumpingTheMoon said =]
Yep, I completely agree.
The reason why she is so "quiet" during her ride, is because she doesn't even move. She just stays put. Quiet hands, because they are stuck at her horse neck. Quiet 2 point, because she's in the same position throughout the whole video.
I could be quiet like that too if I just sat there.
Now, I am not Hunter, nor plan on ever being one - but if I had my way, I would have you sitting between your fences and using your seat functionally. Rounding your adorable pony and aiding your pony up into your seat.
You and your pony are supposed to be a team, this is a team effort and takes the both of you to get the job done. IMO by you, the rider - remaining perched throughout your rides, makes your rides unfuncitonal.
But if that is what wins in the Hunter Ring, all the power to you.
Your Pony is just adorable as all be and he sure does do his best to do his job. Cutie patootie!
