I'm just going to go over some of the things I and others have to remember especially me in particular....do's and dont's
Sit evenly in the saddle
Have heals down
Look straight ahead
Hold your reins in a floaty way above the withers
Pull too hard on the reins in a rising trot
Rise vertically up and down (forward back slightly)
I can keep going with the list it's just remembering it all. If anyone would like to add some hints and tips that would be great.
Yes my area or one of the areas to address is as I pick up the trot into a rising trot my accidental tendency is to pull on the reins or become to over reliant upon them.
For the rising trot....is it good to visulise it like your sat on a chair and you're JUST get up slightly?
Oh..I did nearly fall off today lol!
