    Western Rider

    Theses are the only pictures I have of me on horses that would really work, as I am the photographer. The roan Pinto is during a Relay Race, and I was on my mom's Paso Fino, who suffers PTSD, causing her to rear and spin sometimes. The one on the sorrel with the rope halter was taken on her 9th ride, but I was in my sisters saddle, so the stirrups might seem a little long. The other sorrel was while I was warming him up for the lesson. The kid was taking the pictures. I have never taken any form of lesson, formal or not, so I came up with my seat my self. I'm working on getting video.

    You have a very good natural seat. No critique there. But, the rear cinch on the first photo is hanging down too far. It's possible for the horse to catch a foot there if they try to scratch their belly, or to get a stick caught under it while out trail riding. Should be cinched up to the belly snug, but not pinching tight.

    A video would be helpful, or more clear side view photos at every gait.

    Stirrups in pic #2 & #3 are to long, it looks like if you were to stand in your saddle you'd be right where you are sitting. For western, middle of the bottom of the stirrup should be at your ankle bone.

    While on the sorrel, in the third picture, I was in my sister's saddle.

    I am aware of that. But that was my sisters saddle. I was on while we were waiting for the cattle trailer to get hooked up. If I was the one actually riding her as we looked for the cows than I would have been in my saddle.
