    Now I think this is in a western setting but not sure but saw on RFDTV
    Per Linda Parrelli
    "If your seat is correct and your sitting as you should with seatbones, you can reach back and easily touch your horses rump, if your not, you cannot reach your horse". Meaning if your roached forward like I "LOVE" to do you can't get it easily. This little tip has helped me so much I can't tell you how many times I've re-corrected my very bad habit with this.

    LOL Linda parelli? -pukes-

    Ride every stride. That one is self explanitory.

    Start with the pressure you want him to respond to, THEN increase. I had a tendancy to pull hard at first, then LATER get the horse to respond to lighter cues. It's much easier to give a soft cue, then medium, then HARD. Then, once the horse has the concept and is just being lazy, you can go from soft to HARD in a blink and the horse will most likely prefer to respond to the soft cue to avoid the HARD cue. LOL I guess I didn't have to explain that in such huge detail for you, but there you go.

    HAVE FUN!! Sometimes when I compete I get so hung up on what I need to do/don't need to do. If I just breathe and remember horses are what I live for I'm a MUCH better at riding/training/competing.

    Hm, I'll have to grab my notes as well :)

    Wow, defensive much? It's called an opinion. Yeah from people you don't like you can learn what not to do.

    Sometimes I think 'canter, canter, canter, canter' in my head to get a good rhythm to jumps.

    'heels down!'
