Fast forward a year.
Different horse. Worse position. You'll see...
Practicing with no stirrups, leaning back too far.
One more canter.
Fast forward again.
A few months ago. Hadn't ridden in about a year, me trying out Zeus.
Leg has come forward, toes out, no contact on his sides...
Even walking around and relaxing my leg still comes forward.
That's how my legs should be all the time! Ha ha.
Ugh, I hate my leg here.
He's tossing his head because... a) he wanted to go for a gallop, haha; b) I was supporting myself with the reins, and pulling on him.
The only reason my leg looks okay here is because i'm pulling on him.
Okay, so I know that was a whole ton of pictures, but it really shows how my position has deteriorated over the past two or so years due to lack of riding. Help me know what to work on once I'm riding regularly again. Remember, I will have a trainer, but I love hearing from you guys.
If you got through all those pictures I should really mail you some cookies.
