I am going to highly suggest Lunge Line Work. There is so much you can accomplish while on the lunge line.
Did you know that the Spanish Riding School Riders - of this elite riding acadamy, are put on the lunge line for a whole year with no reins before they can merge to riding on their own.
No wonder they have phenominal seats and legs - I can only aspire to ride like them.
Lune Line work does so much for the rider - this way you can focus on yourself and yourself only, without worrying about where your pony is going and how your pony is going.
Make sure you do this with someone on the ground who has a very educated eye and quallified to work with you step by step.
Too many coaches don't do this for their students, and I think it is a travesty.
You obtain security, balance, a feeling for where your body is, you learn to feel where your horse is. You find your seat, your legs and how to use them as functional aids.
I highly recommend Lunge Line Work. Even I get put on the Lunge Line and I've been riding for years. There is nothing wrong with going on the lunge. No one is too good for lunge line work.
