^ Thanks! That helped a LOT.
I know what I'm supposed to be doing, it's just a struggle sometimes to put it into practice. I can sit and theorize or listen to others do the same, but translating it into my riding is hard, ha ha. We're getting better though! I've seen so much improvement in my horse from trying to educate myself and be a better rider. I'm going to print your post out and read it before my next ride, ha ha.
