I think too much. My brain goes a million miles a minute, constantly running and running - to the point where I am interfearing and micromanaging. My Coach is telling me to stop thinking, and start feeling, just let it happen.
You really don't want to know what goes through my head when I am approaching a fence........lol. Yesterday in my lesson, while doing a 2'11" -3'3" course, I am already thinking about my next fence while I am approaching the current one.
Impulsion, legs on, don't sit down too soon, release, I need more power. Deciding to slow down on approach to the first fence on a jump combo to obtain the next striding, or to drive forward. Rollbacks - sit deep, outside aids, look to my next fence.
On the right canter lead, I need to put more weight on my left seat bone, bring my left leg back, open up my inside rein to land on the correct canter lead to the right. Whether I need to sit and drive, whether I can stay in a 3 point and stay quiet.
It gets too much.
