Cantering... PLEASE HELP!
I have been riding over 4 years now. I can canter, gallop, and jump well. Recently I had a video taken of me riding, and I noticed MANY problems. My one big problem is that I keep my legs infront of the girth. And my other problem is I seam to really bounce in the saddle at a canter. If I canter with no stirups I am perfectly fine! I was adopted and I have very tight calves. I have been working on stretching them, and keeping my heels down. If I lowered my stirups would that help? I ride a 14 hand pony most of the time, if I ride this one very stubborn, cranky, and fast mare, my legs are fine, and I do bouncy around,still! Please help, I need to figure out what I am doing wrong! I need to work on lots, and I am willing to get all the help I need!
