And your instructor is correct! You are MUCH to busy up there with your hands, your hips, your back....that you actually mess with your horse's balance when you do that. JUST SIT and use your legs...that's what they are there for.

My hands are pretty good, before I brought them out, I dropped the reins and hovered before I realized I gotta "airplane".

In the other videos on the channel, they seem fairly steady to me and I've not gotten any other commentary on them.

The leg thing is hard though, I feel so out of shape!

Thank you!

Like I said earlier...DO NOT hump your upper body. Use your LEGS to bring your horse forward. Your horse needs to "carry" you, not the other way around.

The videos posted were from the same day. I haven't the time/money to do another lesson, but I will keep all of this in mind when I do it again.
