    Riding - Ehm

    I hope you read this.. :)
    The first video is where I'm riding the horse after 1 weeks of riding. The second one is taken in January, and its only the third day we're galloping..! (I've been away to germany, usa, and switzerland, so we've had alot of breaks in our riding, and since there's no one else to ride her and keep her in shape, I have to take a step back every time).
    The horse hasn't been ridden most of its life, so she has to be trained and taught all the signals..!
    So I hope you guys can help me, because i've trained her in the trot (more or less) and i'm getting closer in the galop, but that's it..! I don't know how to teach her all the excersises, and so on..
    But I guess I need the trot and gallop completely perfect before I can go on to do new things. So please critique ;)

    I know you haven't been riding consistantly, but here is what I see:

    -Heels down
    -Work on getting your lower leg calm. Drop your weight into your heels.
    -During the canter/galop? You are leaning back quite a bit. Try and stay nice and straight in the saddle.
    -You move your hands quite a bit during the posting trot. Try and get them steady.

    That's about all I saw. :) Nice horse

    I don't do these very often, so hopefully someone will come along and correct me if I"m wrong lol.

    I noticed (as spastic dove said) that your lower leg was pretty unsteady, I think you should bring it back a bit to create a line from your shoulder, hip, to heel. I also think when you post you could try landing a little lighter on the horses back, I think that will be better when your lower leg is under you though.

    I also noticed you did move your hands quite a bit too. I think if you tried to soften your hands a bit, and keep them more quiet you'll find your horse may round out a bit easier for you. Also thumbs on top!!

    The other thing I saw was it looked like you were sort of "shoving" with your seat in the canter. My coach likes to call this body riding. It means your trying to push your horse forward, rather then ask with your leg aids and such.

    Other then that I think you did pretty well, especially if you haven't been riding that much lol. Nice horse too!

    Chico pretty much nailed it.

    Very unsteady lower leg and gets in front of the girth at time.

    Too much hand movement and the horse gets behind the vertical.

    The canter as Chico stated can be called "shovelling" but what is happening is you are leaning back but not really following the lead leg. This results in you collapsing at the hip and falling forward mid-canter.

    You need to follow the lead leg with your hip on that same side.

    ~toes up
    ~Keep your back strait
    ~Your hands are in your lap, and too far apart. Keep them up and close together.
    ~Like the others said keep your leg still, and clam.
