I definitely knew that I had tension, pointed that right out! *does happy dance* I was told that my hands were too low (the very first picture) so from there, I picked them up a bit. Glad I at least got that part right! What do you think about my stirrup length in these pictures? They feel about right, but then what do I know? Haha. Didn't even notice my head sticking out - I remind myself of an ostrich (lol!).
Alright, on to pictures! I was trying *very hard* to keep my calves touching her along with everything else we've been working on.
In this one, I was more focused on her, I think, and I let myself slip a bit. -Maybe I was adjusting my reins? Dunno.
She wasn't too happy that she had to move out a bit tonight, haha. Lazy girl.
The thing about stirrup length is it has to be comfortable for you. Where it is now is good for where you are at. Depending on what you're doing, they could go longer or a hole shorter. You seem to be finding harmony with her so I wouldn't worry about that but moreso keeping your back softly relaxed and not leaning forward too much.
