Me and my New forest pony (riding).

Hi, I am new to this site, I hope I will get some good and usefull tips anyway.

My englisch isn't great, because I am from the netherlands.

About my pony, she is 17 years old (i am 16), and always used to pull a wagon because she wasn't really rideable in her younger years.

Step (she started really tenshioned).

Still not great.

Going to the other side

Gosh my feet :O

Im sitting like a sack of patatoes :o


And at last (after 20 minutes of stepping).

Your feet have slipped to far in the stirrups
She's very pretty by the way

Ok, I can see them now, but what is "step"?

First of all cute pony! She looks like a sweetheart and is very pretty =]!
I'm not sure what stepping is so I will just critique your position. Overall you look great, just a few little things to remember. Heels down and keep your leg underneath you (I think you may benifit from shortening your stirrups a hole or 2). Keep your shoulders back and head up. Your hands are a bit hard to see but in a couple pics it looks like you have piano hands so just remember to keep your thumbs on top. I hope I helped some !

Your stirrups are vv long, could do with putting them up1 or 2 wholes, and you seem to be looking down alot, looking up will balance your wight up!

Stepping I'm assuming is trotting guys :)

And gallop is what we would call a canter. I have a German friend and they use that for canter and gallop :)

Considering it looks like she's in a dressage saddle long stirrup length is acceptable, although I think your really not supposed to have to reach your foot down to be touching the stirrup, I would move it up a hole or possibly two. Your feet are too far in the stirrups, but that's probably from reaching for the stirrup. Very cute pony :)
