Leaning to the OUTSIDE? eek :)

Alright, well I have a little issue :). When Thumper leans to the inside, I put more weight in my OUTSIDE seatbone, the weight comes off of my inside stirrup/heel, and I lean to the outside. I honestly don't know why I do it; I know that it will just make his leaning WORSE, but when I sink my weight evenly into both heels and sit up straight, I feel crazily off balance. Thumper is notorious for getting his riders off balance, but I've never had this problem until about a month ago. I'm planning on talking to my instructor the next time I see her, but I'm won't be seeing her until next Tuesday; I ride on my own most of the week, with a lesson once a week. And I've been pestering her with so many emails that I would feel horrible emailing her once again haha. Any advice on how to fix this would be great, thanks :).

That seems weird to me. My horses would try to get back under me, not lean worse. Well, not really sure they lean at all. I would see about getting a lunge line lesson so you can focus solely on your position. I like to do a fair bit of work with my eyes closed when I have balance issues.

I'll ask her if we could do that some time. I don't feel like I'm going to fall off or anything, I just feel like I'm all twisted and awkward :). A lunge lesson is a really good idea! Thanks for the help.
