Please critique everything!!!





EDIT: I DELETED THE PHOTOS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY WERE PROOFS.
TYPICALLY WE WOULD REMOVE THE WHOLE THREAD BUT IT HAS GONE ON TOO LONG WITH TOO MANY REPLIES BEFORE BEING DISCOVERED.

The only thing that really jumps out is the puppy dog hands. She's a little behind the vertical in the first two shots and seems a tad heavy on the forehand. It's nothing that can't be lightened up with a few zillion half halts. Pretty girl.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

thanks myboypuck... yeah the verticle thing has been an issue because she doesnt really need to set her head in the large pony hunters so that was very new to us... thanks she is my pride and joy!!!

Also I think your legs are a little too far forward, and perhaprs your stirrups are a little short? You look like your pushing your heel down too far.

She's beautiful btw, I love how she's white and her tail is black :)

Humans are like Slinkies. Practically useless, but still fun to push down the stairs.

First of all...where do I get one? She's beautiful!

Now, the only things I'd say are:
Hands could be a little higher - bend at the elbows a bit more. You'll find that if you have your hands slightly higher, she'll be able to get her head up a bit and into more of an uphill frame - I'm a sucker for riding with my hands too low and have been working on it with my horses and find it really helps

Maybe let your stirrups down a hole or so. That way you wont be pushing your heels down so far, and it will be easier to keep your toes in.

Just some ideas :)

Otherwise, looks lovely!

I am not an english rider but I think it should be a straight line from your elbow to her mouth, correct? Plus the piano hands, you thumbs should be pointed upward. She also seems to be pretty heavy on the forehand.

I have to say that your girl has some of the most unique coloring I have ever seen. It is very unusual to see a paint horse with no more color than their tail. She is the first I have ever seen like that.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
