Haha that's why we love dressage!
Haha our coaches should get prizes, my poor coach, one day I just COUDL NOT get the right canter! I almsot started crying/laughing/crying even more at myself. She just patently sat there and let me vent, then she said something simple, like, look up, or 'sit in th emiddle of the saddle' or something like that, so I did, asked for the right lead and bam, we had a great right canter. Haha it made me want to get off and bash my head on the wall.
Its amazing how much our position changes the horses! Haha I was riding today and just couldn get a nice balanced extension...kathleen walked into the arena, barely glanced at me, and told me to keep my contact and just think longer strides. Best extension I have ever gotten. Haha.
Congrats on your 'lightbulb' moment! Hasha and if you ever right that book, I want to help! Haha
