I started taking English lessons a few years ago. I picked it up pretty quickly but the one thing that my instructor always told me was to bring my lower leg back. I struggled for a long time with it because I just couldn’t do it. Finally, she saw improvement, and she said my lower leg looked much stronger. Ever since then it’s been fine. My sister took a video of me riding yesterday and I noticed that while my horse looked better, I looked worse…my leg had slipped forward again! I’m in a pretty bad chair seat in the video, especially when going to the right, which is my weaker side. I don’t really feel that I’m doing it though…sometimes I can feel it slip forward and I try to pull it back, but that usually unbalances me. I do notice that in this video I am posting straighter up and down, as opposed to leaning forward too much like I used to, but I think that has caused my leg to get too far forward. What do you think? How can I fix this? This really bothers me as I have regressed! Ugh!
I’ll get pictures and/or a video on here tomorrow.
