Biggest problem when riding????
Hey, not sure where this was supposed to go. Please feel free to move it if needed.
What is everyone's biggest bug bear when it comes to their riding position and way of going?
Mine used to be my legs....ugh! I was a happy hacker throughout my childhood before I started proper english lessons about a year ago, and I had some BAD habits.
My legs swung like a sea saw, my heels were HORRIBLE and I was perched on the saddle like it was made from knives!!!
But I've improved out of sight since then and now my biggest problem is my hands. *sigh*
When I'm riding lazy horses and I'm trying to put a motor under them, I tend to let the reins slip through my fingers and just gingerly hold them between my thumb and forefinger? WTH? What's that called?
My grip improves when I'm holding a crop, or when I'm riding flighty horses whom you HAVE to keep a contact on, but I can't seem to shake this bad habit!!!
The art of keeping a horse between YOU and the GROUND!
