Critigue my summer's worth of riding?
 
Mhm, so I put together all the riding video's I've gathered over the summer (: i know a lot of them are bad angles, but if you could critique me on any of it? Don't critique the horses please, they're not mine.

Thanks!


I don't know what video you've seen before and what you haven't soo... yeah.

(:

For only riding one summer, you look awesome! You have a really good seat, and your feet couldnt look better!

Oops, I definitely worded my post weird, this isn't my first summer riding, it'll actually be 6 years in the winter (: I did make that confusing though...sorry about that!

Thanks, though!

this is my two cents:

support support support

you need to support your horse, no matter which horse you are ridding you need to support them with your leg. I would like to see you keep contact with them, not for speed so no kicking.

But you look good and it is GREAT that you are riding different horses!

haha that's actually what my trainer and I are working on now! Well, my new trainer. For all the videos except the junior/joey ones, I was with my old trainer who was all reins/no leg. Now we're really working on strengthening and using my leg (hence all the two point and random posting) but i am definitely trying to get better about that.

thanks - I love being able to ride all sorts of horses! it's really been great, keeps me from getting away with much hehehe

very cute horse and he is BIG. You are a great rider. Keep it up.

I would just like to add that when your horse refuses, don't pull him awa from the fence. This will encourage him to refuse. I suggest keeping his nose pointed towards the fence and backing him up until you're a few strides away to attempt again

Looked like you were tipped forward on one of the canters at the end there.
