    Take a look at my riding

    Hey guys,

    So, I am not riding this horse called Batman anymore but I wanted to get an idea of how my riding was. I did, however at the time of filming, have a dog bite on the inside of my right calf and also another bite on the back top of my left hamstring. So least to say I was very, very sore. I was just starting to come off crutches and Panadine Fort.

    He was really a sweet horse, the video is more of a tribute but there is riding in there somewhere. As in the description of the video, Batman is a green, 8yo Thoroughbred who has had little education. This video is our first ride together, my riding isn't that good. I'll be the first to admit it but, there are to be no flames. This horse hardly knew me but he was eager to learn and please. He doesn't like straight lines so there was lots of weaving, stopping to look at the camera [camera *****!] and just general cuteness.

    Also, here is another video of a mare I mentioned in a post about building topline, she is in perfect condition here. Ignore the music, youtube replaced it.

    Thanks guys!

    Looks very nice to me. I think you ride well.

    The only thing I saw was at the walk, when you were testing out his mouth and his reactions, if you kept your hands a bit higher you'd be better able to follow his mouth.

    And in the round pen, I am not sure why you kept throwing the rope at him when he was already going. Once he's going good, why throw the rope repeatedly at him?
    Palomine and AQHAwindrunner like this.

    To keep up his pace, as soon as I stopped doing that he'd just stop and get distracted. I wanted him to stretch out a little more and after the video cut out, he pigrooted and decided to be cheeky. Lol.

    Thanks for your review! :)
