    MIEventer: LOL. That must have taken a huge amount of courage to admit that one! Well done!

    ROFL!

    You know, it sucks when I let one rip and it scares the bajeebers out of Nelson! I am surprised that my saddle is still strong and hearty from all the air force.

    I'm just joking around!

    Seriously -

    I have issues, my biggest right now is that I am out of shape and condition from Nelson being on stall rest since the beginning of Jan.

    Now that we are back to work - I have many flaws.

    - drop my shoulders
    - don't use my core
    - look down and stare at Nelson's head for some unknown reason

    I have no leg muscles, no nothing.

    These are my two biggest flaws. My biggest looking down at my horse.....drives me nuts. I think it comes from years of breaking horses....I always felt I needed to look down to see what they were doing/going to do. Instead of relaying on feel.

    I have gotten better, but still catch myslef every once and awhile

    It is due to me not being in the saddle in a months time due to the medical issues my horse went through.

    When our lessons pick up, and I sure I'll be whipped back into shape - I hopa.

    It does suck though doesn't it!

    This is the most recent video of me riding Nelson after coming back from his injury.

    My biggest one is learning to influence my horse with my seat. Some days it's awesome, and we click so well, and other days I can't seem to get it right. The other is starting to use my core more when riding. I'd also like to learn to finesse my cues, and cue exactly when I need to, not before or after. Basically I just need to tighten up loose ends. The basics are there, now it's nitpicking time.

    I guess right now I need to keep working on myself, finding out how what I do influences how my horse is going, etc.

    One thing that is impossible for me to fix is my stiff arms/elbows, and my hands bounce around :[ any suggestions?

    Let's see...
    I overjump
    I get left behind
    Sometimes I pull on Roger too hard
    I let Roger get into dangerous situations
    I ride in the wet parts of the ring I really shouldn't ride in
    I get too nervous and let Buster take advantage of me
    I give up on my horses
    I don't take behavioral problems seriously enough
    I lean forward
    My leg slips back when I jump
    I get nervous too easily
    ...the list goes on.

    That's exactly what I'd also like to do. Well said.
