    Pretty good! Your horse is very pretty. What breed is she/he?
    You have a nice position, but you're slouching just a little..sit up a bit, bring your shoulders back and turn your toe in instead of positioning it outwards. =)

    I agree very pretty!

    Straighten up a little you look a little slouchy. Your toes are out and need to be in, other than that you look very nice.

    Your horse looks nice to but I would work on softening her up in the mouth a bit it looks like she is really pulling on you, just work on flexing and giving to bit pressure.

    Overall you guys look great together!

    Yep I agree with Tessa bear, a different bit? She isn't accepting your contact.

    Sit up straighter and deeper in the saddle, close your fingers and remember thumbs up, toes in, and in the second pic raise you're hands a little bit (not a lot just a tad).

    As for your horse he/she is very cute. She needs to except the bit more. I would try some bending and flexing excercises.

    Good luck. You and your horse look good together!

    Roll your shoulders back which will help with sitting up straighter, point your toes.

    OMG thank you so much.
    Rain is only 3 years old HE is supposedly a Arab/TB. We're not 100% sure.
    He shouldmature to 16.1 hands and he's 15.2 hand right now.
    I was toldif you measurefrom hisfront kneeto thegroundthat's howtall he'll get. *15 inches= 15 hands*
    What do you think?

    You are slouching a little bit so you need to straighten up a little and also sit deeper in the saddle.

    Your hands are just a tiny bit low in the second pic but that might just be because you are relaxing more.....and you need to remember to keep your thumps up

    Bring your toes in instead of out and then you will have a better position.

    Rain needs to accept the bit more but as he is only 3 this might just be because he isnt used to the bit. I agree with everyone here about the exercises.

    Keep going with him......you are both bound to improve

    Keep your toes IN and your thumbs UP

    Good luck with rain! Post some more picks ok?

    Another thing I think would do you a lot of good is side pulls or what ever you call them or a martingale, I used one on my colt and he learned to give to the bit in like 30 mins

    I just let him wear the side pulls and walk around in the arena while I went off and had a coffee.lol (i was watching him the whole time but from the airconditioned lounge) and he fussed a little the little by little he started to figure it out poor thing kept backing up until he realized to get away from the pressure he just had to drop his head. Then I got on him and WOW I just kida wiggled my fingers and he dropped right down!
