Im happy I went through your guys' threads about position and riding in an english saddle, because I went to my job at the museum completly un aware that we ride in english saddles, not western, SO! I remembered what you guys said about your postion (heals down, thumbs up basically), and the instructor said I had an AMAZING postion, and really soft hands, so they are putting me on the brand new horse, Roxie.
I havent ridden english in 10 years, and even then I basically was just led around sitting in a saddle, and today I walked trotted and cantered, all on my first time, and I was told I looked amazing haha, so thank you to all your english riders, I didnt ask for help, but I still got it from reading your threads!
(maybe I can get dad to make a video, and take some pictures sometime [remember, if I look kindof bad, Im just learning! Lol] and I will show you guys )
