Hello all, well after having three weeks off and emptying my head as well as doing a course in energy balancing I had a very good lesson today and something just clicked about half way through in the rising trot and everything felt natural! This is my eighth lesson and perhaps it just shows that even though we like to ride frequently to keep up practice, it does help to have a slight lay off. My trot feels more natural now and I can perform a better rising trot with speed providing you don't think about it!
My area that will need addressing will be heals and knees back but that comes with time. I also find widening the legs very helpful as in open the legs wider.
Has anyone else experienced this before as a newbie?
