Hey horse people, so I'm a relative beginner, and well, I was used to a very sensitive zangershiede, a mare I first rode on. Now that I moved, the stables I ride at have very.. Insensitive horses. My instructor tells me I have to kick harder, however I was never taught to kick yet squeeze, but the horses here don't respond to a squeeze and I'm just tired, physically, of kicking all the time.
Also, I seem to keep my lower leg away from the horses body when riding, if that makes any sense, I don't keep them on the horse, especially when posting. Should I? Or doesn't it make a difference?
/(horse)\ <- what my legs look like
|(horse)| <- what other peoples legs look like
If that makes any sense at all hahaha
