More photos of Gigi the grey

Ok so here are some more recent photos of my beautiful girl.
So she was never ridden properly by me after being broken in and i never trotted her (too nervous) and its the first time she has been ridden in about four months........i thought this would hinder her progress, but obviously not! I have been lunging her every day and getting her used to my voice commands trot, walk canter,trot,walk,trot etc... and so i decided to ride in my saddle (which has never been done) and boom shes amazing!!!! didn't get distracted by anything didn't freak at anything!! i was so happy i couldn't wipe the smile off my face! and her trot is the most comfy i have ever ridden....

Oh and a side note... I have never been good with diagnols so im pretty sure im on the wrong diagnol with these photos. am i right? hahah

She's a very pretty mare :) Is that a dorsal stripe down her back?
Congrats on your progress, and it looks like you're on the correct diagonal to me.

congrats! cute horse too :)

& you're on the right diagonal.
i was always taught "rise & fall with the leg on the wall" meaning when the horses leg thats closest to the out side of the arena/roundpen you should be sitting in the saddle, then rise when the outside leg comes forward. hope this helps :)

Yeah out is a dorsal stripe ok thanks for the help cause I usually feel the diagonal rather than look at legs haha. But I will.remember that little hint thanks every one
