    Riding "critique"


    This is not really a critique - just want to ask you, what do you think of her improvement? Did she improve much in this one year? And have you got any tips for me what I should mainly concentrate on?

    Ok, the first link ist Lucky with her previous owner shortly after she's been started.

    And now here's the link of me riding her. This was taken in May 2009.

    Now, what do you think of us?

    Thanks for watching and I'm really looking forward to some tips and constructive criticism :)

    So neat to be able to see people from all over the world! What a darling horse. She seems very calm and willing. How old is she and how long have you had her? What are your plans with her?

    I think she likes you better :)

    Why are your hands so far out to the side? Just wondering..
    She looks like she's accepting the bit pretty well, and useing her back legs good..Of course I'm not great with critiques on the flat..She looks good and is drop dead gorgeous!

    Your a busy rider......LOL You need to let the horse do it's job. Set her up in the circle and then leave her alone. By constantly working the reins and your legs her self carriage is going to suffer.

    Are you spreading the reins to get the bend?

    Thanks for all your answers :)

    @lovemyponies: Lucky's 5 years old and I've had her for 1 year now. I haven't got any great plans for her. I'll just see how far we get :)

    @sunny06: With the hands... that was a tip from our trainer to get her to hold her head lower even while moving forward better, because first she would only hold her head low while moving really slow.

    @G and K's Mom: I know, my legs should be still, and I'm working on it, but I can't seem to have them completely still. ... I have to play with the reins to make her hold her head in a lower position constantly. If I stop it too long, she'll raise her head and run like a griaffe again. Any tips what else I could do if not playing with the reins?

    What do you mean "to get the bend"? Do you mean to get her to hold the head low ... then the answer is yes. That's the main reason for my hand position.
