    You need to make sure the horse is bending correctly in each direction even as you change directions. So that when you come around that corner and straighten out, the horse doesn't just motorcycle but it travels upright.

    Then you approach a little before the corner to straighten out and pick up your new bend. I honestly like to pick up my new bend about 1-2 strides before the wall

    So much information to take!! Don't laugh, but I'm concentrating on heels down, shoulders back, sit tall, arms relax, and when I'm changing direction, after I go across the diagonal, I don't remember which direction I came from.... Such a loser..

    Hun we're still working on those exact same things even after riding 7+ years. You aren't a loser.. riding a horse is tough.
