As you know know this is my 5 year old Trekhaner/TB gelding. I havnt been able to get good pictures of him or me riding him till yesterday!!

Dont critique me, as I know what I really need to work on, steching down through my legs, shoulders back, more relaxed bend in my arms, look up haha

Keep in mind he has only been under saddle and in full training with me for about a full month, Only undler saddle for 5-6 months now!

Hello people I really was excited to post these pictures! I want to know what you think!!

oh man i loooove your arena. I used to train with a Canadian jumper rider out there in Seattle... At CEDAR DOWNS. From what i hear they have since leveled the equestrian center at Cedar Downs and put a bunch of houses up. Very sad.
But your arena makes me miss miss miss riding out there!!!

You've got a lovely gelding. He seems polite and, although a little unsure, he seems like he's listening and trying for you. :)

Well, I know very little about English and am not a very good critiquer in general, but I think he is gorgeous. He seems to be working well for you. Sorry I can't be of more help.

He is everything you wanted in a dressage horse. I can see his elevation in the trot, which must be challenging for you to stay with, but looks awesome. Love the shots where you are riding without your right stirrup. wondering if it's intentional or not.
He is just too lovely. IT would be easier to critique if he had a lot of problems we could nitpic. Boring! (just kidding)

YOu both look good and not critique on you.
