    Show Weekend

    We still have a really long way to go but I'm really excited about the progress we've made since last year. This show was so much better than we did last summer. I have a new trainer but I've only been with her since February so beleive it or not, she's actually worked some miracles, but there is still huge amounts more to achieve...

    In the western pix I Know all my fat shows and I need to loose some weight, and then also, I only did horsemanship (equitation) and trail so that's why I'm not completely holding him together, but I'm going to work on it. Feel free to offer critique. I know we are still in need of work.

    English portions

    I know he's a little thicker than most english horses but I think he look ok in the tack. He doesn't have the graceful going that the appendix qh's have but I'm kind of partial to the thicker build...

    Ri is such a handsome devil! Whatever on the fat thing, I'll trade ya ;)

    Western - Especially for HMS, I'd like to see your leg a little more under you. Heel lined up with hip. Stirrups could be a hair longer.

    English - Hands - thumbs up :) That is my bad habit, I always have to remind myself. Lately when I've been working Missy, I ride with a crop in each hand so that I have to make an "x" over her withers to get good hand position.

    Hands are definitely an issue for me. Do you think drop the western stirrups just one hole? I wonder if that will help move my leg back as well? Do I need to scoot forward in the saddle or just shift the legs? I thought I looked a little chair seated.

    I can see fat rolls on my back!!!!!

    I don't think you necessarily need to scoot forward. Drop your stirrups a hole or two and take more pics. I think that the length of the stirrups may very well be the cause.

    I like to ride as long as I can get away with. Something my mom beat into my head as a kid. She'd make them long enough that she'd put a marshmallow in the stirrups and the goal was to not squish it. She was mean haha!

    He looks so cute in the western tack. Love the yellow on you too! Those obstacle things look so fun.
