Ok so I had a post a few weeks ago on the lunge with a chestnut tb gelding....well I have changed mounts and have just started riding a big american warmblood mare. This is my first ride on her so it wasnt perfect. Please let me know your opinions...how is my positon? what are my strengths? What are my weaknesses? Please let me know what I'm doing wrong and how to correct, excercise would be great! I'm worried about the details...Thanks in advance for your opinions and suggestions...oh one last thing the mare usually goes into a nice frame for her owner I'm still learning on how she works but if you can think of any suggestions for her as well that would be great too!:lol:

In the first video, your line from elbow to bit is broken which is causing your horse to brace against the bit instead of soften to the contact. Just raise your hands about an inch to create a straight line and it should make a big difference. Your seat looks good. Legs are nice and quiet. Overall you look good.
