It's an old photo, and I know the wrists are TERRIBLE, but what else do you guys see?

Would you come groom my horse for me? He's absolutely stunning. Squeaky clean. I can't comment on your position. I don't know squat about western.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

i don't know anything about Western either... however i would say to roll your shoulders back a bit, since you look a tad slouched. My horse kinda' looks like the horse in your picture! :)

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

yeah, gorgeous horse in great form and super relaxed but listening to rider.

rider is very well aligned over the stirrup. looking up, too

just roll the shoulders back a tad, without getting tense about it and get that hand up. I think you are trying too hard to be light with your hand, but even the hand should be holding the rein with "tone" in it; not limp.

MORE!! show us more!

Thanks guys. If I remember correctly, I was always trying to get him using his hind end more, and didn't do a good job of doing it quietly, lol. The shoulders have always been my weak point.

Tiny, I wish there were more pics of us together. His owner was supposed sent me some....
