    Okay before I even watched the video I read this...

We got it in the clinic just fine. So yeahh... just another one of those critiques. She really likes to pull me down on her right lead as well,
    Why are you pointing her head to the outside? I think that makes it harder to get the lead. You want her head forward, with a slight bend to the inside. Holding that outside rein as a supporting rein (as in elbow in next to your body) while you have a soft inside rein.. and you close (kick???) your inside leg and then give the cue.

    If you kick.. and put her nose/head to the outside, that's making her really wonky my dear! No wonder you can't sit it.. but it'll come :)

    I'm definitely not barking on you or anything, I'm just trying to help :)

    Okay now to watch your video.

    Alright a few things. Your hands are soooooo far up her neck... I can see how she'd be pulling you around. She needs to use her back because right now she's got her neck stiff and not using her back that I can see. So that's probably why it's harder to sit. Once she softens up (little longer rein, pushing her into the bridle via softening the bit) then you'll be able to keep up and not pulled around.

    Also.. I think what would help you sit is if you let your legs be loooonnnngggggg and let that weight go down into your seat and legs.

    You're so close... you've gotten so much better!!!

    :) How do you feel about your riding missy?

    Just wanted say for 6 months your doing great just sine things I. Noticed just be careful of your elbows but I think something which you realise. Have you tried lengthing your stirrups a hole might help stretch your leg down making that canter lil bit more comfy and when your approaching the jump it appears that's she's going to one side so I would advise using that leg to push her back but again that's something very minor please don't think im trying to be hurtful or anything cos im not a perfect rider and have serval things to work on but keep up good work and be proud of how far you've gotten in six months
