I had my father take some videos of me riding today; I looked at them and I looked HORRIBLE! I've been riding for five years, but with college I have few opportunities to ride...and I've noticed/felt that I am not as stable as I used to be. My right leg is all over the place when I canter, but the left one is solid. Trotting is a whole different story. I'm fearing that I'm getting back into my old riding habits of not gripping the horse. Knowing from several people (and my own experience) I know that my horse rides like a Cadillac, so I figure it's me just getting out of riding shape. Thankfully my boy is a good sport and didn't do anything despite my bad posture!
Any tips? What are your opinions of doing two point and stirrup-less in the saddle? ANY exercises on or out of the saddle would be a great help.
Thanks again :)
