All my riding career I have sat up in my half seat for riding, that's just how my barn teaches people to ride.
This summer I decided to go to a horse camp for two weeks and I when I went to see how it all runs the girls that were riding in the advanced group
(which is the group I will be in )
All their butts were sticking to the saddle!
They looked really good at it too! So (to fit in and for advancing my riding skills) I decided to work on sitting deep in my saddle while at camp.
Because right now I look like I have a gummy worm as my spinal cord whenever I try to sit deep :P
(i have one more lesson at my barn prior to going to camp if any of you were going to suggest asking my instructor about it)
And of course, I RIDE ENGLISH :P
