So in my eternal and ever patient quest to find my new companion/friend I realised that sitting here and not doing anything about my riding ability (or lack thereof) isn't the best option (although this forum is an amazing resource for information!)
From lessons so far I have learnt that:
- I have terrible posture (slouch and I shuffle my bottom forward in my seat)
- I have a very hard time keeping my legs back and underneath
- I don't keep enough contact down the reins
Are there any 'at home' exercises I could do to improve these things?
I just looked up pictures of myself riding last summer, wow that was bad, my legs are so far forward I'm sitting in an armchair!
That poor horse..
