This is a real improvement for Arthur because he always is trying to go back to the barn when he gets bored when we ride. I've worked with him a lot lately on working on a loose rein without trying to go back to the barn, and it's amazing how much he's improved!
What I see is my feet are too far in the stirrups, and my hands are too busy directing Arthur. I think my hands will look less obnoxious once we practice in an arena and my horse knows his boundaries so I don't have to direct him as much. Critique away! Thanks!
