I see a balanced rider. Solid leg, nice upright body (sometimes looks a bit TOO far to inside) and sometimes elbows roll outward, but mostly rides real well.
Horse , improved? I guess he seemed a bit more forward and balanced. He is still bending to the outside frequently, but I don'tknow the history of this horse and it may be that you are bringing him along slowly. But he does need a bit more guidance to begin bending a bit to the inside.
Not much help here, sorry.
Thanks, ANY help is appreciative. :)
About him bending to the outside, yes, it's a work in progress. He's doing A LOT better than he used to. I think majority of the time in this video when he was bent outwards was when my boyfriend (who was filming) was standing to the outside of him and caught his attention, and there were kids playing on hay bales too. Lots of distractors. :P But yeah, we're working on him bending to the inside more.
