    (New Here) flat critique

    Hello I am Chelsea and am new here. This video was taken about 3 years ago. I have only been riding for two years. I have trained Diamon by myself. I have went through so many instructors with him as they just wanted to train me on a different horse, so I just decided to follow other trainers ideas. I now have a instructor who is here to help both of us. This is the best video to critique I think but I have others you can check out on my yt page. Ps there is one clip where i'm in a hunter hack class, but most of it is flat.Thank you!

    Note- I know my stirrups were way too long in this video. Last week I raised them up 3 holes. That was the cause for my swinging leg and also my wrist were incorrect.

    Your hands are too far apart, try putting them closer together, other than that you look great!

    I know you said that you knew your sturrups were to long (which they are). But just a little pointer tip thing.

    When your stirrups are too long it will cause your toes to go down, especially during the posting trot. Since you are pushing of your toes/feet your toes will go down becuase of the pushing. So putting your stirups shoter will keep your heels toes from going down.
    I know you said that you raised them but I was just saying.

    Thank you! Yes me shortening my stirrups has helped a lot! I can't believe how low I had them. I probably just got into a habit with it.
