I recently started doing some counter bends/arcs with Squiggy to help her relax. She has a big issue with relaxing sometimes, and it seems to be helping, or maybe it's just her concentrating on learning something different thats helping her relax, who knows! But it's really helping her out in a lot of ways and will prove helpful later on too

Well...at first I REALLY over emphasize it to the point I lean. Im putting all of my weight in the stirrup of the direction I want her to go and using my outside calf on her. Eventually all I have to do is rock my hips...weight in stirrup....body square in saddle. But like I said...I over emphasize at first. I can get a video if youd like.
