    Pictures To Critique


    Well currently I am trying to develop my skills as a rider, but I would also like to develop more skills as a theory. So it would be appreciated if people could post their photos that they would like critiqued so that I can learn more about rider errors and attempt to pick up on their faults and their qualities as a rider. Video's are great as well! Only in English riding as this is the discipline I do - eventers, dressage, show jumping, hunters ( I only understand a small amount about this ), ect.

    Thank-you all in advance for taking the time to post your pictures and videos.

    Here are a few of mine you are free to critique (you may have seen some of these before, though). They are of hunters, though, so feel free to concentrate on what you know because I know you said it wasn't your strong point. So, the first one is a video with one trainer, the second one is without a trainer, and the third is with a new trainer (sorry for the poor quality - you might not be able to see enough to critique). You may want to turn the volume down, as there is coaching in the background. All 3 are with different horses; the first I had ridden numerous times, the second horse it was my second time on him, and the third horse it was my fourth ride on him.

    If you want any stills, or you want any flat work, just let me know.

    I love Zepplin's "proud of himself" head shaking thing after the jumps. He's so cute!

    Ok so not the hijack this thread or anything but in the last two videos the behavior that that horse is displaying is that condersidered acting up or is it normal for the tail swishing and hopping about to happen? This is what Guiness does and I don't have anything to compare him to here at home because they are all quarter horses and arab and none of them act this way and I thought it was just him being fussy but I see quite a few not only yours but other videos of english trained horses and no body says anything about the behavior, is this the norm or are they acting up?

    ETA: I just re read my post and wanted to say I hope that didn't offend but I don't know anything about English riding or the way to train them and am just honestly asking out of curiousity to build knowledge thanks : )

    It is acting up, but with the hotter horses you sometimes just have to ride it out.

    You need to work on your hands. You either have they up to high on the horses neck. Which is fine with a tight rein to give them slack. But you also plummet your hands on the horse's neck. Which does nothing except lose direct contact with the mouth. Also you put them down on your lap. Which also loses contact. So remember to keep your hands up and thumbs up and have a straight line of contact through you elbow to hands to bit.
