Talking New Way To Work On 3 Point Seat!

HAHAHAHA!

I was using a public washroom yesterday while I was at TSC buying Nelson bags of feed. And as you know, it is yucky to sit on the toilet seat itself, so us woman have come up with a way to hover over the seat to do our thing.

While I was doing this, I said to myself "HEY! This is a great way to work on my 3 point seat!"

My Coach has really been working with me and my 3 point seat, where I am so close to my tack, but not in my tack on approach to a fence. Legs under me, open chest, tall upper body, legs wrapped around horses side, not tense, but relaxed while absorbing horses energy/motion...

Same effect while hovering over the Loo! ROFL!

My seat is close to the toilet, but not quite on the toilet. Legs under me, core working to keep me supported. Opened chest, not tense, just relaxed and allowing the flow to occur.

ROFL!

I got to the barn, and I said to my Coach "I found a great way to improve my 3 point! Using public washrooms!"

MIE, you're twisted girl! My work bathrooms are gross. I've been practicing that seat for 20 years!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I would just like to point out that it's EXCELLENT that your coach is working on this with you. It helps your balance, it helps you find your distances, it helps you ride to a fence better...I could go on and on about the benefits of the "3 point seat" versus the standard "2 point" position. Learn it, use it, love it because it will definitely improve your jumping especially cross country when you need to drive your horse to the jump, get out of his way and collect back up immediately after the fence! It helps in stadium as well but you're closer to "2.5 point" in stadium hehe.

OOOOOOOOoOOoOoohhhHhHhHHH!!! I have a small bladder, so before I am going to be one kick ass 3 pointer before I know it!

And - as I said on my FB page - when I am riding, all I have to do is say to myself "Don't sit down on the toilet seat"

LOL! I love to laugh as you know! And I love to tease and joke around, one of my favorite past times! Glad I can make you laugh!

HAHA PUCK! You know you laughed! Man, you are already one kick ass 3 pointer! JEALOUS!! LOL!
So, if I need a critique, I know who to go to - so as to be sure I am in the proper functional form over the loo!

If you want to really practice 3 point, try it in the woods. There's nothing under there to catch you if you don't stay in position!

BWWAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! For that, I think I'd have to take my spurs off - or better yet, leave them on to give me that extra umph to stay up.

While this is NOT the skill I wish to be known for, I did a 9 mile hunter pace last year entirely out of the saddle. Just never got tired. Guess that's why.
