Ok, so I'm going to start taking English lessons tomorrow. I've ridden western all my life so it's a big change. Thursday the trainer at my new barn evaluated me and said I had good balance & seat and she liked how I held my hands, and I had pretty good potential in English. So I'm deciding to persue it.
My trainer briefly made me post and taught me diagonals, so I'm going to be working on that. My question is:
What muscles do you use to post? I was pushing off my stirrups with my legs but I don't think that's right? Because it causes me to raise my heel.
Thanks for reading!
