Bart in English Equitation ~ 2011

This is a video I have from 2011. It was my third year riding English, I believe. Its amazing to look back and see how far I have come in a year. I'd love to post a more recent video, but I can't seem to find one, so I figured that this one would work. All constructive critiques are welcome!

Keep in mind this is coming from a dressage rider, but I think you have a very good seat and your posture is excellent. As some of the other comments said a little more contact will help him frame up better and he does need to be going a bit faster. You want a distinctly English gait. I especially liked your posting though, it was nice and quiet and you kept a good steady hand position. Overall you looked like a great pair!

Collect the reins a little, English requires more contact in the mouth. Your heels slipped up a little bit too, always keep them down! :) You are a great rider, and you have a great horse!

Great job! I'd say that you need to relax a bit, you look a little stiff... ;) Lift your hands up about an inch maybe - and tighten your reins! English requires contact, and you're riding on a loose rein. Maybe speed your horse up: your trot and canter look like a jog and lope! :)

Your horse listens to your cues beautifully, and you seem to have a wonderful partnership. However, keep in mind that this is an English class, and correct me if I'm wrong, but your horse seems to have mostly western training under his belt. You should try putting in more contact to your horses mouth and you will be able to achieve the more concentrated form that is desirable in an English class, as opposed to the relaxed form of a western class. Great job overall, though. You did a wonderful job!
