Thanks soo much! This is going to help a lot. I get what you are talking about and I will for sure remember that next Sunday at my next lesson. I will also work on strengthening for my legs and core muscles. I will also work on keeping my elbows and hands steady next time. I was not paying much attention to them as I was other things. Thanks so much.

Another thing, when school starts, for our P.E. Class we go to the weight room 3 times a week and I will make sure I work on core and leg exercises.

I know exactly what you are doing! My friend at my barn has this problem and it has improved with these tips 1- Try to move out the horse a little more because its easier to post that way 2- See if you can get a few longe lessons where you can't balance off of your reins (that looked like a bit of a problem in the vid) 3- Posting without stirrups work/ posting bareback Hope this helps!

I would say you should work on strengthening you core muscles, as well as your leg muscles. It seems as if you're using the momentum of your upper body to thrust yourself upwards, when you should be using your legs/thighs/butt muscles to do the work and your upper body should remain fairly still and straight. Just picture your core/upper body as being tighter - keep your elbows more at your ribs and think of having tight ab muscles as you sit up straight - this will help keep your upper body still as you work on using your legs more. I also would recommend lengthening the stirrups, but just a tad! And keep those heels down, that will help too! :)

Actually...I watched again...and I take that back, I think your stirrups look about the right length, but just try to keep the heels down. And the elbows to the ribs thing will really help to steady your arms more, and steady arms make for a much easier ride for both you and the horse! :)

Don't force the post, and yes you're not centered.
