He looked like every picture of the 'cowboy riding the range' we all fell in love with as young girls. He could have been wearing clown shoes for all I knew.

    Point is, enjoy your ride. I can honestly tell you than when I ride with my 'old cow hand' husband (and he is older than me :) ) I am much more into spending time with him than I am about his propriety in the saddle.
    Awwwwwwwwwww....so cute! That's the way it should be!!!

    I've just started riding my horse at 'almost' liberty...just using a cord on her neck. Now, if it REALLY mattered that much to the horse....wouldn't she not listen to my aids and maybe even bucked me off or run away??? Lol. She seems completely content with my faults, as I am with hers.

    Obviously she understands what you are asking. Good job!

    Cute pic! Pleasure riding, is just that, for pleasure. Although it's important to ride safely, your actual style is inconsequential. Keep yourself and the horse safe and comfortable and I'd say you're all set.

    Oh my....
    So, is it you not feeling " right" or is your instructor insisting in a certain way?
