He is so cute.
Your heels are down which is good but you need to bend your elbows a bit. Other then that your perfecto!
He is such a cute horse! I LOVE HIM!

I could be wrong but at one stage on the video it looked like you were bouncing and not rising. I think it was just before the corner closest to the camera. I could be wrong because the camera was bouncing a bit.

Lol, my poor attemp at a sitting trot, I'm afraid, but I'm getting there.

No, it literally means to bend a horse's entire body around a circle or turn. You will learn how to do this as you progress. You are doing very well. I'd like to see your toes turned in a bit, your arm brought back a bit while maintaining a bit of flexion in the arm. Thumbs pointed toward the sky, and head up! Good job.

Thanks, that's great advice. More posts like that, and I can improve much more easily. Thanks, Kristy.

Don't you all think I need to push my pelvis more forward when rising in rising trot?

I had a go at the canter and a little jump today, and really improved my sitting trot. 'twas fun, and amazing to seen how much you can fit into a half hour lesson.

You look great, just, instead of rising so high and straight up, try rising a little less and come a little more forward. I know that sounds like weird riding, but trust me once you try it it does look good and it works(helps keep your balance) I love your horse!you two look like a match made in aheaven!
