Well I don't know if you want a critique on the rider or horse but I can say that your friends horse looks like she would do really well i the dressage ring...very nice mover

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

1) You kind of have "chicken wings". Keep those elbows in more.
2) (Same as above). Keep your thumbs ontop!
3) You seem to be pulling back a bit. Not that it would effect her that much, however when riding with a bridle, that would effect her a ton.

I'm being very brief, but LOVELY mare!

Great to see your riding bareback! You look very comfortable and balanced, and if you can do that well bareback you can do even better in a saddle. The only thing to say is that your "reins" are too long. You've addressed this in another thread, so it sounds like this is an issue you are already addressing. Just be careful not to haul back on the "reins" to support yourself when you are riding bareback.

Gorgeous horse. Does she need a new home?
