    Shoulders and heels

    I've been riding for 7 years. I'm 16 years old.

    I've been through 3 riding teachers. I'm on my 3rd one now. She's an amazing teacher. :)

    I'm having trouble keeping my shoulders back.
    My teacher always says "make your shoulder blades touch."

    I have a wonderful seat at the walk and standing still.
    My shoulders are back then.

    However, when I go to a trot or faster, I tend to out my shoulders somewhat forward and my heels go up.

    Any tips on how I can fix this? :)

    I was always told "Act like you have the biggest boobs in the world."

    Well said, Harlee! That should work.

    My trainer says "Act like you're about to sing" or quietly hum the ABC's to yourself.
