Daily adventures while training my young horse.
Looks pretty level and straight to me? On the right rein...as you probably know you lean to the inside and sit across the saddle to the left too much. If Echo tolerates this you can try shortening the left stirrup a few holes and really focus on landing evenly on both seatbones when in rising trot. As the horse;s body swings left/right we tend to sit deeper on inside diagonal pair and slide a bit on the outside diagonal (where the back drops). It might sound very basic but there is plenty of advanced riders who can't do balanced rising trot.Echo looks great, I am very much looking forward to meet her in person. Love her walk!
Just to add - I know we all always need t owork on something but you're a very quiet,elegant rider!
I want to ride her! She is so adorable and looks so steady in the bridle :-) I think you two look great! We do always have something to work on. For me it's my elbows. I tend to stiffen them in transitions and also let them stick out. Oh well, it gives us an excuse to keep trying since we are not perfect yet ;-)
Echo is beautiful and such a nice mover! I can't really give any advice on the saddle because I don't have a trained eye for what to look for, but it looks nice. I don't think it's sliding over her spine or anything and if it's straight when you finish the ride I would go for it. Good luck!
I looks like you may have found a winner.
