Riley Show Pix

Ok... They've started posting pix!!! Please don't really pick on Riley too much because he's only 2 and at this show only had 30 days of training. He's up to 60 now! We only did walk/jog classes. Please rip my equitation apart!

THANKS!!!

I'm awful at critiquing but I just wanted to say that Riley is so cute! Also, I love your saddle pad.

Aw..... You guys look REALLY good together! Is that the top that you are trying to match the saddle pad to?

I suck at critique so I wont... but awwwwwwww.... I can't get past awwww.... You looked so attentive to him.....awwwwwwww

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Thankyou guys! and yes, that's the shirt I need to match to... It's the one the girls all said looked like a dollar general special. I actually really like it! I borrowed that saddle pad for the show. I ordered two more shirts too, a red one and a leapord print one...

I didn't realize how fat I was till I looked at those pix! I need to put a how much weight do we need to lose critique up there!!!

But for real! someone critique me... but i love that you like my "pony"!

I know nothing about western riding. It always blows me away how early you folks start your horses.
Good Luck with his training.

I've never started one this early before. I was always under the belief that you start them at 3 but this is my first OFFICIAL western horse and my first OFFICIAL year as an AQHA rider so it's all new for me too... My trainer actually wanted him at 19 months but I held off until he was 24 months......

I went back and looked at the pictures again... I'm still not going to critique anything but shirt and saddle pad... cuz I don't know what the hell I'm talking about .........SO.... I took another look and I really like that shirt and pad combo...can u steal it? lol.... And if you are getting a red shirt... It would maybe look good too....I don't like it when western pleasure getts TOO matchy matchy... It just glares at me that the rider is saying LOOK AT ME... ( I know that's the point... but...) Its like someone lighting up a rose in the middle of the day... unnecessary..... I wan't to look at the HORSE and rider in that order... I don't like to be distracted by loud and obnoxious colors... I like the simple classic well put together looks better. I like clean lines rather than flashy and fabulous... ok... thats my 4 cents


Oh.... And you are so NOT fat......dork!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Looks great! In the future if you plan on showing, i'd use some sort of gel or baby oil to slick his mane down flat. I love the colors you choose and that's one great thing about a Bay, they look good in any color!
