This sort of belongs in the critique section

Heres a link to my thread, at the bottom is a video of me riding today.
It's sort of going to be my blog for anyone who is interested. I'll upload pictures and videos whenever i get them.

I'm not sure if this is allowed, if it is not than whomever is in charge delete this post.

Firstly, you need to bring your hands closer towards each other - you look like your riding a motorbike not a horse. When you turn a corner she looses balance and drops her shoulder, give her loads of support. Put your legs on her - allow her to feel that your asking her to turn, instead of just using your rein and steering.

When you ask her to halt - don't just use your reins and pull on her face. Use your leg aids as well, for everything your leg aids are so much more important than using your hand/rein aids. Forget about all types of movements, get her general flat work nice she's rejecting the bridle, she's not coming into it. Allow her to be softer and start accepting the bridle and bit. Allow her to stretch her top-line and use her back to actually carry you, instead of just hollowing at her back and not working correctly.

Sir Success. Eventer.
