Newbie introduction and tips for a girl back in the saddle?
I am new to the forum, but have been reading for a while. I have been riding for about a year now after having almost 3 years off from a really bad car accident.
I have a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, shoulder injuries, internal artery injuries… The list basically goes on and on.
I have been working a lot on basic flat work and small jumps (under 1 foot) and my instructor says that I am doing very well. But I have one constant problem with my riding that I never had before. POSTURE.
My shoulder is much weaker on the left side because of my injuries, and I am doing a ton of rehab to this day to work on this. But my shoulder always falls forward (especially when I am in the canter). Do any of you guys have any tips to do at home/while you are riding that can help train my shoulder to stay straight?! It's really beginning to aggravate me.
