Okay the weather was waaaaaaay too nice not to ride again, but I took it easy since Chrome isn't used to working two days in a row and his stifles seemed tired (but not painful thank goodness). I think the ride ended up around forty minutes again, but most of it was standing around (salt block and pictures) and walking. I trotted maybe twice is all. I did get some pictures of my two point for you guys to critique though! I'm so sorry these are all cell phone pictures.
I'm thinking my stirrups are still too long, but sheesh they feel so short when I'm sitting in the saddle. There is a picture at the bottom of the post where I'm sitting so you can see how much bend there is. In these two pictures above my legs and stomach are not touching the horn or poly. It looks like it is, but that's just my shirt hanging down. After taking pictures I realized my leg was way too far back so I fixed it and he took a couple more (the ones above), but I still don't know if they are right. Also I did not realized I was swaying my back so bad! Maybe that's why it hurts? So any pointers are greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!! Oh sorry about the sneakers and white socks lol. My paddock boots are way to small and uncomfortable to get my heel down so I just used my sneakers. :)
Now here are some more random photos from the ride. Enjoy!
Shiny in the evening sun. This was before the ride.
I see dapples!
Goofing off like I'm going to win the Derby and there he is with one foot cocked LOL!
I love this horse! This is the one that shows how bent my leg is.
Sorry it's so dark. Enlarging it might make it easier to see.
Thanks in advance for any help! Remember I've only ever had dressage lessons. I've never ridden in two point before this and I'm not used to my stirrups being that short! :) I'm having fun though!
