I just started riding hunter. I'm having problems with my leg position... especially when I'm posting. When I post, my leg slips forward, my heel comes up, and I lose almost all contact with my lower leg. When posting I can't steer my horse with my leg unless I sit and move it back to where it should be.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong and I don't know how to fix it. Maybe my leg isn't right in the first place? I seem to mostly grip with my thighs and knees but I can keep my lower legs steady and my heels down in the walk and canter.
Thanks in advance.
