The Leaning Forward/Leaning Back Problem
I've been training with my new dressage coach for about 5 weeks at this point (after what feels like an eternity off). Everything has seemed to come back really nicely so far. I took some video this weekend to see "where I was at" - I was fairly happy with one exception. I was for sure that my position had gotten to the point where I was sitting straight/slightly back at the sitting trot in a solid controlled position, but when I look at the video, I am forward just ever so slightly. I'm looking for tips on how to push myself back - if I already feel like I'm leaning back LOTS to get where I'm at now...then it will feel even more drastic if I need to go back further to just be straight - is this making sense? It's SUPER hard to explain...please let me know if I did a good enough job.
Here's the best part - I go to upload the video to my computer to watch the "real size" version of it (instead of the mini-camcorder screen version) and can't find the DC cable to plug it in. So I tried a few things trying to get it to work and I'm pretty sure I completely fried my camcorder in the process, without getting the video off of it. So I am super disappointed, but yes, we have a second HD camcorder at home - so for tomorrow night I will try taping and see if I can post an example of what I mean so you have a tangible example to work with.
In the meantime, would love to hear some thoughts on this issue.
