I have just about everything wrong with me! My worst is my toes sticking out instead of forward especially when I'm jumping, I know it's like the most common problem ever! hehe

Where to start, haha. My worst habit is that I tense my forearms and use them to try and muscle Thumper in to slowing down... and obviously that isn't going to work, haha. I've been improving in that, though! I don't release enough, and when I'm asking for the canter, I lean forwards >:(. Obviously then they don't want to canter, because I drop them and am expecting them to hold up their end of the bargain while I don't hold up mine. Ah well, at least I know some of the things I need to work on :). And that's what riding is all about- improving. It's a continuous challenge, haha. You never know everything!
