Riding Interview Wednesday- Tips?Advice?
I have another college riding interview on Wednesday (4-27-11). They are basically going to see how well I ride and how comfortable I am on a horse. I have a few problems though.
1) I just realized I have a tendency to sit really lopsided in the saddle, which I assume was confusing the horse I rode saturday (in my journal "my life with R.A. and horses") I assume it was caused by the sciliosis, any of you who have this have any tips on sitting straighter and keeping a bit more even?
2) I have a huge problem with keeping my heels down, every time I ask for more than a slow trot I find my legs creeping up the horse's sides and myself a little thrown out of the saddle because I've lost my balance and seat. (doesn't help either when the horse I rode kept dropping gait after every step so I had to keep after him)
3) I have a tendency to lean back in the saddle randomly, it got better as I practiced but anyway to keep myself from doing this.
I'll try to post some links to the video I took after I get them up in the critique section if I can. I'll hopefully be going out again today if the weather holds out and behaves.
