Being a "Rider" instead of a "Passenger"
The one big problem my trainer has with me is that I sometimes act more as a "passenger" than a "rider." I know this problem is keeping me back from learning new things, I've been doing the same thing for MONTHS because I can't master what we are working on now.
I don't know what it is, I think maybe I get nervous and blank out. I'm not nervous about falling off or anything like that, I just want so badly to do it correctly.
