Okay so I have a problem. I seem move with my horse's stride too much, especially during the sitting trot. Instead of using my core I ride the sitting trot with my hips loose. Hard to explain, and harder to fix. Sometimes I have it and I feel the muscles in my core working and other times I just can't get it. I've had it explained to me in so many different ways, and I can get it for a bit and feel them working, and then I lose it and have a hard time finding that sweet spot again. Anyone have suggestions? Throw what you can at me. I understand the theory but putting it to use seems to be the problem.
We did lots of sitting trot today and my trainer noticed, and intends to do a strictly sitting trot lesson to work on this. But in the mean time (could be a week or so), what can you tell me to help me find a way to make it click?
