See if you can find those large metal balls they sell at like Chinese or herbal stores. You have two in your hand and move them around your palm in circles using your wrist/palm muscles instead of your fingers.

you both look like you have been riding for 3 years non-stop. i know you dont like wearing a helmet but if you were over here in hull and someone saw you riding a horse without a helmet you get fined. my cousin was riding her horse in the sand manage outside without a hat on (she trusted her horse with her life) then her horse just freaked out for no complete reason and she fell off wacked her head on the fence post, she was on intensive care for 5 months before she came out of her coma.

my auntie got the vet down, farrier everyone to come and check the horse over and nothing was wrong with him, he just flipped and went mad.

a horse is a living thing it can change its mind and flip in a matter of seconds.

thanks

by the way, you and your horse look natural even after that month and a half break off :) keep it up :p

Once a ride, forever a friend!!

You look really good together, but some of the pics are a bit blurry. Can you adjust the ISO on your camera? Try turning it up a bit higher, which will stop some of the blur.
He's a beautiful horse :)

It's quite neat for a month and a half. Just watch your toes, stop them from sticking out. Your also a bit strict in his mouth, search relaxation.
If your horse don't do that. Ride in a circle. Ride him low, and just ask him. With your outside hand you ride him on the bit, with your inside hand you make sure he stays low. Your steer with your bodyweight. If he doesn't let go of his bit you make a halt and hold pressure until he lets go.

I kno theyre a bit blurry, sry my bf was taking them but i kind of like some of the blurry ones i think they look kind of cool.

but everybody thanx for the compliments. I'm trying to build back strenth in my wrists bc of my carpel tunnel, this was the first ride we had since it flaired up real bad so i know our contact is really crappy and actually i'm not holding him tight in the reins and i only use my body and legs to steer to clear up any questions and he likes the contact i give him if i hold him any looser he gets pissed and tosses his head. all i do is push him with my legs and whereever he sets his head and is comfortable i take up the rein slack.
