I warmed him up quickly to see if the camera was in the right spot. The entire ride is on video above.
Things I know..
Shoulders back! Sit Up!
Heels down! How ugly are they? Ew... That's definitely something that needs improving. I need to start stretching them down on stairs and things, get those muscles back in shape.
His canters were nice. See where I shortened the reins? Nicer movements!
I also need to wear spurs in this saddle, now that he's adjusted to it. Before today, I was hesitant, since he was still bucking and throwing mini-fits. Now, after four days straight riding both horses, my legs are calling me all kinds of nasty names.
The good things? His trot is pretty - even when he's not collected, his legs are a-movin'.
Enjoy the video.. Feel free to critique. We can take it. However, if you're one of those nasty bloggers that steals video for others' pleasure? You suck! If picking on a young horse in a saddle he's barely been exposed to makes you smile, I hope the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits. :)
