Doing it wrong the whole time.. ?!
*Sigh* So I started riding in august. It's been a good 4 months and I FINALLY just started riding with my heels down correctly. I thought I was doing it right, and I guess it looked right for the most part. But my feet would slip out a lot. Well in my lesson the other day my trainer was stressing it to me, and I mentioned it as well, that my feet were just not correct. My goodness what a difference having the weight in my heels with them down makes! And as soon as that improved, so did everything else; Hands, elbows, my trot was so much smoother. I'm just frustrated that it could have been like that sooner had it clicked like that in the first place. :-/
Has this happened to anyone else?
