Pics of my baby Ariat from this summer :)

Just so you know the riding pics were from some of Ariats first shows, he had only been under saddle for like 3-6 months in these pics, I say 3-6 because they were not all taken at the same time. :)

No critique, but he is a pretty boy and looks sweet too. I like the last picture of the two of you together.

Oh My Gosh, when I first glanced at the first pic I was like OMG this girl stole my Mikey pony! lol He's a little polish arab, almost identical to your boy but mine has a snip on his muzzle. (not the horse in my avatar btw)

He looks great for being so green. My only critique is on the 3rd pic it looks like you could get your lower leg a bit further back and underneath yourself. Your hands are also a bit far back. If you move them forward a bit and let him find the contact I think his frame will look a bit less forced and more natural. But hey kudos for great progress with a greenie. :)

haha my hands were so far back because I was attempting to slow him down (my legs and seat just werent doing it at the time) lol. He does amazing in the practice ring he will collect up beautiful and keep a nice pace and then I take him in the show ring and he forgets everything and thinks he is a racehorse lol. I think its because he has an attachment to the mini and it never fails that the moment I enter the ring is when my mom decides to bring her out and show her off lol not to mention I get a little nervous in the ring to begin with lol I am gunna have to work on that one :)
