Would you come groom my horse for me? He's absolutely stunning. Squeaky clean. I can't comment on your position. I don't know squat about western.

i don't know anything about Western either... however i would say to roll your shoulders back a bit, since you look a tad slouched. My horse kinda' looks like the horse in your picture! :)

yeah, gorgeous horse in great form and super relaxed but listening to rider.

rider is very well aligned over the stirrup. looking up, too

just roll the shoulders back a tad, without getting tense about it and get that hand up. I think you are trying too hard to be light with your hand, but even the hand should be holding the rein with "tone" in it; not limp.

MORE!! show us more!

Thanks guys. If I remember correctly, I was always trying to get him using his hind end more, and didn't do a good job of doing it quietly, lol. The shoulders have always been my weak point.

Tiny, I wish there were more pics of us together. His owner was supposed sent me some....

What I like best is the natural head set. No peanut pushing! Yes!
