I don't often have the chance to be videoed while riding, but yesterday I rode in a little "Drill Team" group at an open house for the therapeutic riding program where I volunteer, and got it on film. The routine is really simple because we only had an hour to practice together, and weren't sure how these horses would do in front of a big crowd. Still, even though we're not doing anything fancy, it's definitely great being able to see yourself on video- I wish I could do this more!
I would love to hear what people see in
The one thing that really stands out to me is how busy I am up there in the saddle. My old instructor always drilled into my head that I needed to follow the horse with my hands and seat, but I'm really pumping away- it looks like far too much work.
What else to you see that I could be working on?
