I agree about the top line for the western picture, get his head up off the ground. I also agree with bellybaby concerning the English critique. Sad that AQHA has to dictate what it thinks is a proper English working horse. But that's the name of the game.

Lovely horse, and you look very nice on him as well.

And, just a little nit pick on you, it's REIN not reign :)

The english saddle is way too big for you, and finding one that fits you better would definetly help your position (which is great considering the saddle fit). Riley looks amazing for a three year-old, I would just work on getting him more rounded. But I guess that's a personal preference for me... In western I would work on bringing his nose in just a bit, and getting his butt up underneath him more. In western, I personally prefer it when the rider sits up straight, like in english, with shoulders back, I think it makes you look neater. But again, I'm mostly an english rider, so I'm biased.

Reign, means to rule. Kings and Emperors Reign over their kingdoms and Empires.

Rein is what's attached to the bridle ;)

ok for one.i love your horse. Its one of those horses you can take to an english show and look good. Then go into a western show ring and look just as good.

For your riding western: I think you should move up in your saddle..dont sit so far back. Shoulders back and yes....loosen your reins!!!

Btw ur horse has a lovely tail!

If my horse doesn't like you then I don't either.Deal with it!

That is like comparing apples and oranges. There is no comparison between a QH pleasure horse and an Arab pleasure horse. They have completely different conformation...

Besides, I hardly thought her horse was "peanut rolling".
