HaHa well were do I begin? My faults are: with the horse I have now he barges at the jumps and I tense up and sit back before the jump which your suppossed to do but then I stay back when I go over the jump and makes my position terrible and jabs my horse in the mouth and starts him throwing his head! My heels all ways go up when I give the aids and my canter aids are really failing I always try to get it from arising trot even though I now I shouldnt I just can't keep down in my seat and then he goes into a really fast trot then canter and then I have to use all my strength to keep him in canter because its so unbalanced!:Llol
I have the stupidist habbit of tightining the reins a few strides from the first jump (it drives my instructor NUTS. Lol) I think its because Trooper hates jumping length reins so its easier to tighten them up last minute than to deal with him trying to pull them out of my hands.
I also have problems loosining my hips during to the canter. My instrucor says I have a "true equestrian" sitting trot but I can't to it at the canter!
-i ride with really short stirrups...because im really tall.
-i love to just ride in this wierd like halfseat/2pointish position.its wierd and people are always like wth what are you doing....its comfortable
-i have to constantly think heels down heels down!
-sometimes when I ask my horse for a canter. I lean forward!
- and you will all hate me for this one. One time...only one time I got really pissed off and jacked my horse in the face...because he kept rooting on me :( im really ashamed of that one!! And I felt really bad after it :((((((((
