Here's Christie's lesson from today. Ignore my chattering, please.
We had some stirrup trouble. She was in my saddle and we had to wrap the leathers, and we couldn't find a length that looked right.
I feel like they could be a little shorter.
She's still posting off her feet, which is understandable, she hasn't ridden in a while. She leaning a little forward and she puts her hands on the horse's neck. I think that's because she's not balanced, her heels go up every now and then.
When she asks for an upward transition, her heels go up and her lower leg goes behind her. I don't think she notices she's doing that.
At the canter, she's unstable asking for it and then she leans on her neck
She was so willing today, she actually asked me to take the stirrups away completely. (that didn't last very long) Christie on Alibi - YouTube
She asked if she could, so I said it was okay. Here, her stirrups are raised a hold, her heels weren't down, but her legs were a little more still. Christie on Alibi - YouTube
