Tips for better hands in rising trot

Hi

I am new to this forum and just starting to have lessons again after a 2 year break. I don't have a horse at home (anymore) so can't practice outside weekly lessons.

Anyway in my lesson today I was having a lot of diffculty keeping my hands still in rising trot and was wondering if anyone has any tips/advice? This used to be an issue but never as bad as today.

I agree with above post. That's what I did when I had the same problem.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I had to learn how to ride without reins and without stirrups so I learned to use the horse to help "push" me out of the saddle and I didn't use my stirrup irons. Alot of people use the irons which results in having a huge thrust out of the saddle and messes up your hands.

Yeah, see if you can find someone trustworthy. It helps to make you an all around better rider. When I took my first riding lessons I didn't even know you could post, let alone what that was. So I thought that everyone rode at the sitting trot.

One day another rider was in the ring and was posting, I couldn't help but laugh thinking "what is she doing?" then my trainer had to break it to me.. >_> she told me about the sitting trot. I thought it was so easy and I was mad she didn't teach me it before. Now I'm glad she did.
