In both situations I am unable to use my legs effectivly. What should I be doing to properly & effectivly post in dressage?
I'm very new to dressage and posting(i always rode western) so I won't be any help, but I just wanted to say that i'm having the exact same problem, I was making some progress, but then my trainer moved 2 weeks ago, and I can't afford any of the other trainers around here....I'll be watching this post for some tips, I always thought most of my problem is that I have bad knees
