    Just thought I'd share - was reading the February Horse&Rider magazine and there's a really good article on improving your seat... By your instructor. With a model riding Aramis. Get her to teach you what she's been writing! She knows her stuff, and that horse looks great.

    Faye: Oh right that's interesting that Hull has so little, I'd hate to have 20cm!

    Minstrel: Oh I didn't realise that! I'll have to dig it out I have a subcription to H&R so I'll have it somewhere thank you very much. She's not exactly cheap but you get what you pay for and seems friendly from our phone conversations :)

    My lesson got cancelled due to snow but have rescheduled for Friday at 10 I'm looking forward to it, Thanks everyone. :)

    Just had my lesson everything went fine, Aramis was a dream to ride and put up with me being not so balanced at times. Did lots of trotting without stirrups focusing on really lengthening my leg and not leaning forward which is a habit I have. Then took my stirrups back and did more sitting trot and then some canter. It was brilliant Jo was so friendly and really knew her stuff. Aramis just did what you asked of him and nothing more or less. Best lesson I've had in a long time and I feel I really made an improvement after 5 minutes of being on all my nerves were gone and I was just enjoying myself. Thanks for all the advice everyone. :)

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your lunge lesson. My daughter LOVES lunge lessons. She will often ask her trainer if she can have at least 10-15 minutes on the lunge to start her lesson, if not on the lunge for the whole lesson. She is only 11 but really gets into it. She will often have her arms out and eyes closed and will be completely focused on feeling the horse and getting good transitions. I think it really good for improving your seat.
