My Offical English Riding Critique Thread

Instead of posting videos all in seperate threads, I decided to post them all in one thread for my online coaches! LOL...


Here are all of the videos from since I got my saddle, in chronological order (These videos have been in this section and critiqued, any further input would be nice though!)

This video has yet to be critiqued. My position is probably not the best as I was working more on the horse than me.
More description on this video can be found here: If you wanna run, lets run.

Do you also ride western? That last video was a little hard to tell as you were silhouetted alot but your reins come up high like a western rider at the canter and sometimes the trot. MAybe it just looked that way since the video was hard to tell. But if not, you need to keep your hands lower, closer to the horse.

Also, Your posting looks....forced. Like you are raising out of the saddle to far. It doesn't look smooth and natural, not in sync with him. Don't worry so much about posting up/down as it is -feeling- him move and moving like he does.If you only have to raise yourself up out of the saddle an inch to match his rythm, then do it.

On a more positive note, you sit very straight and pretty. :)

I do ride western :) Thanks for your critiques.

I do see how bad my posting looks in the most recent video. I was wearing spandex-like yoga pants and them plus synthetic saddle = slippery!!!!!!

Agree about the forced posting.. and at the canter you rock your upper body a lot. Be quieter.. think about your butt being glued to the saddle and allowing your pelvis to roll.

Otherwise very nice :)
