While my horse was lame for a month, I took lessons on different horses. Here is a horse named Tempo who I decided to take a lesson on. In my opinion, I look horrendous, but I still would like other people to critique this ride. Be as brutal as you want, ahaha, this is going to get interesting.

The Video (ignore all the talking lol):
Imageshack - 1001497

My Critique on Myself:
-my sweatshirt makes me look like a smushed prune
-the sweatpants and fact that my hair is down and bouncing around look ridiculous lol
-my elbows could be bent a tad more
-my lower leg could be a ton more steady
-i could soften my posting a lot
-my toes should be turned in more
-my heel could be down a little more, not overflexed though
-my leg should have stayed in 1 place while jumping
-i should have stretched up more in my half seat while jumping
-i should have sat back while stopping

Your turn to critique me! :) Have fun!

It looked to me that you had a better leg than you think. It looked steady, and didnt slide back at all. If it did a bit, couldn't tell really, you could put you heels down a bit more as you suggested. Just as your horse (or in this case, schooling horse) takes off, push down real hard in you irons to keep your leg at the girth.

I dont think you were over posting. But that saddle looks huge for you! Maybe you felt like you had to work hard to get you bum out of the saddle.

Good work!!

Thanks guys! Heartmyottb, that would make sense about the saddle- since it is a schooling saddle it doesn't fit me at all. lol
