    Riding Critique?

    I have a couple pictures from recent random times... and I was looking for a critique. All are in the past week so very recent :).
    First, my lesson on Sunday with Celeste- she has such a big trot LOL. And her canter is gigantic! Anyway, here are the pictures...

    And a picture on Thumper...

    And my lesson last Saturday on "The Lolibird" (her real name is Lola, but she is affectionately referred to as "The Lolibird" and "Pony" lol). She's a 6-year-old half-arab who has lots of energy. I look like a giant on her- she's about 14.2/14.3hh and I'm 5'6" :).


    She's still learning to jump as you can tell .
    And a picture of her spazz-attack...

    Thanks in advance for critiques!

    I'm not much of a critiquer.. but you look good!

    The only thing I notice, is that when you are in 2-point, you look like your perching on the horse.
    Suck your stomach down, and lean forwards more, keep shoulders up

    Alright- thanks! I'll work on that tomorrow when I go to ride!

    You look good! Another thing is that you need to turn your hands up, so your fingers are facing in, your knuckles facing out, and your thumb is completely on top. Right now you have slight piano hands.
