Hi everyone! I am a beginner and I need some help. The big problem is that I am learning to canter. I do it on the lunge with a strap (I'm not sure if its a neckstrap- its attached to the saddle). I find that I bump a lot. When I look at other people cantering, it looks like with every bump that pushes you forward you bring your hips into the back of the saddle? Am I right? Sorry, I get all kinds of crazy impressions of others riding
Also, my sitting trot needs work. I recently changed stables and my new lesson horse has a wonderful trot, but I havn't quite gotten used to it. I bounce like a baby and it doesn't exactly help my canter transition. Yes I do lots of trot without stirrups, though it doesnt help much because all I do is hold on to that strap & hang on for dear life not really riding lol
Tips? Sorry I have no pics.
