Why am I so one sided???

Alright, so now it seems that my right leg is awfully weak compared to my left..... LOL. Looks like I will have to do some p90x leg workouts to get my leg stronger.... anyone else have this issue?

On a positive note, Citrus is softening at the canter... it is just taking sweaty saddle pads and me being consistent with my release of cues.

I too am one sided, I tend to prefer working that side more, and I have to remind myself all the time to work the weaker side.

I am one sided too. My horse is also stiffer on my bad side which makes it even more difficult.

I am one sided, mine happens to be from nerve damage to my left side from a back injury from an old fall. My problem is I end up over working my bad side to strengthen it, so my strong side ends up suffering, I need to remember to work on working more evenly lol. Make sure if you exercise, do it evenly =)
