Thanks for your comments! Ridethesky: you have a good point, I didn't know if my butt was too far behind or my legs forward. The saddle DOES look small!!! You are right!!! I hadn't noticed that at all!!!! BTW, Allison Finch, it is not a Pariani, but it is an all purpose and suuuuper comfy! Tiniliny, she did not position herself like that on her own, I 'played' with the reins until I got her like that. Argentina is a paradise for horses and horse people! That is for sure. Yapa is not a criollo, she is a 'silla argentino' cross, which is the jumping breed here. She probably has some criollo blood, though. Again, thank you so much. I've already been working on the faults I have, based on your comments, specially the hands...!!! The best thing you can tell me about Yapa is that she looks happy and healthy, Ridethesky!! Those are the two things I care the most about! I can't tell you how happy I am that I decided to buy her! We get along very well and she is learning and teaching me a lot!
