Oh, I'm so sorry you have to sell your pony, but try and think of it as a good thing--your pony will go on to teach someone like he/she taught you, and you can move on to a horse that will progress your riding. :) It's tough though, so I hope you aren't too sad :(

I am a coach/trainer myself, so I've seen this in different students. Sometimes, your body and how it's built (meaning torso/leg length) can affect how you ride a horse/pony (the balance of each can enhance or de-enhance your position/ability).

Hope it helps! And I understand about you not having a horse to jump. Hopefully you will find something that can help you soon :)

Yes, thanks!

But here's another dressage video which I've been promising for a while now.. :)
My mum will be filming me soon again, where you can see closer up and so on, but for now there's only this.

THE VIDEO:

at the end you said got his head more down.. he's really overbent and on the forehand, let him come up to the vertical so he can relax and usehis hindquarters properly

good sit trot

His head position is not perfect at the moment, but its better all the way down there than up.
Right now i'm training on keeping his head down so he keeps it there instead of me having to force it down. Then when he stays down there and becomes loose in his body I'll start working on getting his hind legs under him and his head more vertical... Although I'm not entirely sure how I'll do that yet, but my trainer is working with me :)

He won't become loose in his body if he's on the forehand, hollow in the back and not engaging his butt. Work from back to front, not front to back. At the moment your setting him up and teaching him false collection.

good luck
