They are really bad quality because I played the video of me riding on my TV and took pictures of that.
Anyway these are from me riding on Sunday. I know I'm looking down in one but it is because my instructor was working on my hand placement.

Thank you! We are moving to a different barn this weekend. Maybe I can get someone to take some real pictures of me.

Yes I do dressage. I'm schooling second level with my Trakehner.

You two look great together!!

English and Dressage are two complely different things right?? ...You'd think I'd know after 6 years of showing horses... :o

I kinda wish now, that I would have trained my horse for English riding too.... but I decided to go the gaming direction, and he's doing great.... Maybe one day I'll have to try it. ;)

I hope we get to see more pictures soon, your horse is beautiful!

English is different than Dressage. But english and most disiplince use dressage as the basis.
Thank You! I really want new pictures. I don't have any!

You and Tralee look great together! Good luck at the new barn. :)
I thought english was just a term that included all of the diciplines that compete in that general type of saddle, and western the same? For sinstance, Dressage is a kind of english the same way barrel racing is a type of western?

Yeah your right. Western and English are the too basic types of riding (like an umbrella term) and within each there are many other disciplines.

I have never considered myself as riding english. I think of english riding as showing in equitation. I really don't know anything about english and jumping.

Dressage is very complex and very difficult. The rider can control every movement of the horse by using their weight and the seat bones. The easier it looks the harder the rider is working.
