Correct Position

Sorry if someone had posted something about this recently, but I was wondering about it today.

So here is what I want... Pictures (and/or video) showing the correct position and I want it broken down. If someone could explain HOW to get a correct position that would be fabulous, but if not, that is fine. I just want a good explanation of WHY it is correct (effective) and HOW it is correct.

Thanks!

Have you read Centered Riding? They explain it very nicely with lots of examples and pictures. I suggest reading the whole book, actually. It's pretty good.

If you find yourself in a book store, pick up "Ride with your mind clinic" and find a comfy chair. It has a unique way of describing the correct dressage seat and has 4 separate chapters for the most common position problems. I found it really interesting, and it's one of those books that you can run to the barn and try to put to immediate use.

One thing a recent equine professional explained to our group was the importance of a NEUTRAL PELVIS. Sit on your saddle and tip your hips forward, backward, forward, backward and then settle into the middle. From there, sit up tall and do your best to align ears/shoulders/hips/heels. I think it may be a centered riding-kind of explanation?

Thanks leonalee. I will try that when I ride dressage next (might be today, though I feel like I need a good gallop, so maybe not).

neutral pelvis

I recently came upon an article about the neutral pelvis when using chairs. It also showed it applied to riding horses.
