| || | Bad Habit After Injury
I tore my right rotator cuff recently and when I ride I have developed this habit where I always have WAY more contact on the left rein, and when I stop I find myself only pulling on the left rein because my arm was too weak and it was way to painful to pull the right rein. My horse is becoming irritated but I can't seem to break it. Since my shoulder is still to weak and painful, and under Doc's orders I am not allowed to ride for about a month, so I have about a month (if I choose to be a good girl and listen to the Dr's) to chase off this minor habit now, before it gets into something more. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! I just kicked my piano hands and really don't want to develop something else!! Thanks A lot!!
