Ignoring Sam’s grumpy attitude, there’s a lot to like about this photo. My legs are on the horse’s side. My seat is solid. My hands are up, although in an ideal world I would drop my elbows down a hair. My head is up. I am projecting an attitude of ease and focused concentration. Finally, I am beautifully balanced … over the center of the saddle.
The photo is taken slightly from the front. In a stride, you would see my lovely equitation posture. My lovely HUNTER equitation posture. Unfortunately, this was a saddle seat class.

I am harder to find than usual because 5 of the 6 riders in the Adult class are wearing helmets. Yay! [Copyright rant]
