    Riding Celeste

    I was hoping to get a critique on my position... So I rode Celeste today- I haven't ridden her in over a month so I came back and she has progressed so much! My riding teacher has been taking her on trails and she's started to develop a topline. So here are the pictures...

    Longing (or however you spell it)...

    (I don't usually hold my arms like that, I was adjusting the leadrope; Celeste doesn't ride in a bridle with reins yet)

    (Or like that ^^^ adjusting once again)

    What a gorgeous horse!

    Thank you! My riding instructor bought her and she hadn't been ridden in 10 years. Right now we're re-training her and taking things slowly. She's 22 but I don't think she looks it.

    Really nice job with keeping your heels really down!

    You look pretty good! The biggest thing that jumped out at me is you are leaning in on your turns. I have that problem too!

    22 yr? When she is that good looking at 22 I don't have the heart to give any crits. :)

    Thanks morganshow! Yeah leaning in on my turns is something I do a lot. I'll try to work on staying centered.

    Wow she looks fantastic for 22! She's beautiful! Love those canter shots.

    You have a chair seat in some of the pics. Your legs are forward and causing your toes to not be lined up with the rest of your body. Maybe the saddle is pitching you back a hair, or maybe your pelvis is rotated a little too far back. I do it too more than I'd like and still trying to find the fix.
