    Yay! An arab team :))

    I think you two look great. Like tiny said, you should ride with your hands more forward, but not too far forward that your elbows aren't bent. I'm working on the same issue, I started out riding arab HUS and that's how I was taught, but I guess it's not correct!

    Good luck!

    I fuss over my position all the time ! And it doesnt help with having to work with a 4yo who hasnt been worked with very much at all !!.. If your horse needs a little more encouragement to go forward when riding English try holding a glove just below your knee against the saddle whilst you ride in the arena.
    This will help you keep your leg on and give a little more encouragement while placing your leg in the correct position. Its what I do if I feel as though my position is a little sloppy.
    With the glove being held in place, this will pull your shoulders up, opening your chest, and will be more comfortable to hold your hands higher.. remember to sit on your 2 bum bones and relax to feel the movement of your horse. You will probably find your ride will be alot easier once your used to sitting back a little.

    Hope this helps ! Xx
