Butt shots, as unflattering as some may find them, can tell a LOT about straightness and rider position. So that's why I like them, to a certain extent. She was stepping under herself nicely here and I'm not collapsing to the inside like I was prone to do but am now working on!
MY GORGEOUS GIRL!!
Some nice Training Level trotting, and in a straight line. Whee!
Once again, a flattering butt shot.
A nice head-on shot. Though I am leaning a bit to the inside, I'm not collapsing like I tend to do on my other side. My inside leg is back to keep her stepping under herself, while my outside thigh and rein are supporting and keeping her "straight" on the circle.
Haha! She would sometimes get quite behind the vertical as she was figuring things out, bless her. One bit of the video she has her chin practically to her chest for three trot strides! I freaked out thinking I was doing something wrong, but L just told me to push her forward and she would figure it out, and she did. Whew!
A little crooked in the saddle, but nothing I'm not working on!
My best jumping shot to date! If my stirrups were a bit shorter and I released a bit more - and the picture quality and riding attire a lot better haha - I wouldn't mind sending this to George Morris. Well.... maybe not him..........
She looks like a big warmblood in this picture :)))
A very pretty walk! The walk and canter are actually our most difficult gaits. The trot is her best.
My leg just slipped back a mile, that's all.
Her excited trot....
And her REALLY excited trot the second time around. What a babe.
