Wink She took my steering wheel away!!!

Ok so not really But my trainer wanted to work on my form over the fences so she DID take my reins away - she knotted them and made me drop them right before the grid. She told me I shouldn't need them to ride anyway, and she's right...but they are like my security blanket haha!! So it was difficult, but still fun -- and great for my balance and leg strength!!

You look great! I LOVE doing this with my pony, but have never tried with so many jumps! : D
It helps if you put your hands on your hips. :)

Thanks!! IHeartPhoebe, great tip! I wanted to put my arms straight out to the sides like I was pretending to fly but Desiree told me to leave them down haha! I guess then it REALLY teaches you not to use your arms for balance at all...but hands on the hips prob would have been easier! I'll try that next time

It makes you realize how many are actually very reliant on their reins when they ride, because of being taught incorrectly by coaches who either - don't know, or because they don't spend the needed time.

It is great to see a coach spending the needed time with their student to help them refocus where they should be riding - which is in their seat and legs.

Keep up the good work, glad you finally found the right coach. The right coach makes or breaks ya - and it baffles me as to why so many stay with coaches who aren't right for them.....
