My friend wants critique.

This is my friend riding, and she wants to know what y'all think about it:

It's kinda long, but just bear with it! Sorry about all the talking. We were bored. I have the camera, so you can REALLY hear me! LOL!

Her seat doesn't look very stable, and she's got chair-legs, probably because she's trying to hold on with them to compensate for the non-steady seat.
The horse is hollow and high-headed and therefore not my cup of tea, but he looks like he did what he was told.

Yeah, she hasn't been riding for that long. I noticed that she has a chair seat after you said it. She looks WAYYY better in a saddle; she just needs practice.

I never really got the chance to work with Chevy. He got stolen (long story) about 2 months after my friend got him. He was always very responsive, but every time you tried to get him rounded and make him go, he bucked. I never got the chance to work it out of him. :(

Yeah, there's a joke that's kinda inappropriate that goes along with it! LOL! When we're riding, we're always like "Let's go twatting!" It's so funny!

Yeah, it's a joke. I'll put it in the jokes section for all who get it.

LOL that is funny!
She does need some work with her seat & balance- maybe she should try some bareback work? :)

Ride more, worry less.

Yeah, I cried. I really miss him. He was a pretty good jumper. He loved to go when he wanted to, but he was known to buck when he didn't want to canter, mostly with me. Once, I was trying to get him to canter around the round pen, and he started bucking and running at the same time and I fell. It was sooo scary. But I did love that horse...
