First English Lesson
I have rode western my whole life. I love the look of dressage and riding collected. So basically i finally decided to take an English lesson...I wanted to learn more on posting. Also I wanted to figure out where my feet go. Which I did find out.
Any way here is a pic from it. ( I tought western lessons at this barn before going back to school full time).

I do know my hips look further back than should be but its how my saddle is...its a really hard slant. So I know even though its different from western but I need to stay rurther forward.

Remember to relax and breathe.

You look very nice. Leaning how to post is lots of fun. Lol!

Tempest, it could be loading so you couldn't see it. I think it happened to me once or twice too. :wink:

not trying to be critical, but you need to bring you feet back

So how did you like the launching pad known as the english saddle? Some western riders I know call them Chicklets since there's nothing there compared to western.
