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!!!
