Hi, Can you guys critique my riding and my new horse? I got her 3 months ago. This video was taken about a month ago. I have not ridden her a lot since then as she has been having some problems. She has begun to rare, buck and back up while being ridden. So I am thinking she is in pain or she is just being a moody mare. I would also like to know if the way she carries her tail is normal? You will see how she does in the video. Now a bit about her...She is a nine year old Thoroughbred mare ( Not sure if she is purebred but that is what I was told she was and she does look like one :P She could have other breeds in her though). Before I got her she was only used on treks. She had never jumped before or she has never been worked so much so maybe she just adjusted to new training badly which is why she could be behaving bad. Also I would like to add her 'knees' crack when she moves them after being standing for a while so I think maybe she has joint problems. I will be getting the vet to check her out.
And about me...I am a 19 year old girl who has been riding since I was 9 but I took a few years break that is why I do not look great XD I also have bad confidence issues and lost my confidence about a year or more ago. I just about got it back but I still have problems jumping and riding scary horses which my mare now is! So I would love to get her problems sorted so I am not afraid of her.
So here is the video...!
And pictures of my horse. These are the best ones I can find. I was a bit worried about her neck because when I got her it was really thin and bad looking...
Here she is before I got her.
And this is when I had her for a few weeks...
This was a few weeks ago
And these are the most recent...
I will try to get better pictures of her
And sorry for posting again but I could not seem to edit the other post again and I forgot to add the pictures!
