Here's a couple that I have. I guess I was about 11, and had been riding for less than a year. I'm sure my parents have more pictures of me from film cameras, but my dad decided to bring the digital camera out that day
...I promise that I've improved...
Note the lack of ANY sort of contact in the last photo? Well, here are the results! Rest assured, I was only going over trot poles at that point :P
Lol, I remember everything about those pictures. The one pair of riding pants that I had, the too-large lace up paddock boots that my dog ate, my horse socks, Troxel capriole helmet, and my green pimple grip gloves.
Probably a year later at a new barn. Some improvement, but apparently I still didn't know what to do with my elbows :P
And apparently I was into over exaggerated posting
Same mare, same day... my first bareback ride. I also had my first... and second fall on her. It was at that point that they decided she wasn't a suitable school horse...
