First time English in A YEAR
I only have video stills.... I can't edit the video to upload it :(
What do ya think?
And for fun:
I'm no good what-so-ever at critiquing, but your elbows need to be bent more, having them like this throws your seat forward. I'm quite guilty of this also and need to remind myself constantly. Great for first time in a year though!
Stirrups need to be a bit longer, leg back more, and shoulders back, chest out. Go practise.
I felt like I needed to drop the stirrups a hole! Dangit. There's always next time lol.
Shoulders back, turn toes in a tiny bit, leg a bit back, elbows need way more band and your hands need to go up too. Like you're eating dinner with a plate in between your hands!
Your hands are very open - your fingers are lightly grasping the reins with the very tips, not actually wrapped around them. Hold the reins - in a fisted hand, not with fingertips. This gives you better control of your hands. Additionally, you need to keep your thumbs on top.
Here's the quick video....
I was trying to trot... and was trying to post. But my horse wasnt giving me enough "ooomph" to post, so I just decided to sit it in the end. And then it looked awkward.

I think dropping your stirrups will help with your posting and balance. Remember, don't grip too much with the back of the calf, but the side. Be careful not to grip with your knee! Also, when she begins to trot do not lean forward. This puts more weight on the forehand, throwing you and her off balance and encouraging her to walk to regain her balance. If I was riding a horse that was only giving me that much trot, I would have given her a hard kick and if that didn't work I would start carrying a crop!
I think I'll feel a lot better once my stirrups are more comfortable.
