I'd love some critique on my riding with my pony.
He's a 12.3hh, 14yo Welsh Pony and I have owned him for roughly 10 years.
The main problems that I can see seem to be -
Leaning with too much weight in one leg
'Chicken wings' over jumps
Not releasing enough
Sometimes pushing my legs forward into stop (as if I were trying to push on brake pedals
In one dressage photo, my reins are quite short - I could anticipate the buck that was coming in the next movement - and this caused him to overbend.
I look down! I am trying to focus on not doing this, because he can tell when I do it and ducks out when we're going over bigger jumps.
The main one, I need a bigger horse
(We've been searching for about a year and came close only to have the prospective purchase pulled from sale)
That said, go your hardest! But please be constructive? (:
I will also try get some video footage, and post that asap.
