I would have video from today, but I forgot to put the batteries back in my camera after recharging them. Anywho. Let my stirrups down a hole, trot was easier and softer, Squiggy is finally letting me post both diagonals (she was for some reason uncomfortable with one diagonal, that went away!!), so im just working on keeping my leg back all the time. My saddle sets me up forward, so I always find my shoulders ahead of that shoulder/hip/heel line. To my understanding, the saddle is built to do that to make a forward seat and 2 point easier.
With my stirrups one hole longer, my seat fell apart at the lope, so I brought them back up a hole and all was better, and I also posted better too.
Although, I have a few questions:
When im loping right circles, I always feel like im falling to the inside, over compensating to the outside andpushing my saddle all crooked to the left cause most of my weight is in the left stirrup. Is it something to do with my horse being crooked? Or am I the crooked one? We are both all good to the left. I wish I had a video. Aaaand this only happens English
