Also, if you just add a bit of leg you'll have a horse who moves REALLY nicely, but right now your horse isn't stepping under itself to its full potential. This tells me you're not using your leg effectively or enough, and I'm guessing that it's not enough considering that you have an excellent leg! :) Hope this helps.
Thanks so much! I have had some problems with my shoulders ever since I tore my rotator cuff this winter. The one shoulder is still stiff and the other one tagged in on the bad habit. Really gotta work on that!! Thanks again for your time! I really appreciate it! Posted via Mobile Device
