riding behind the motion.. how to fix?
So, a bit about me.
I am an adult re-rider with about 8-9 months experience and have really come a long way for the amount of time i've been riding. I am leasing an absolutely amazing TB stallion which has been awesome for me to really practice and perfect things in between lessons.
But, I have a terrible habit of riding behind the motion, and as a result as I jump I push myself too far forward when jumping. I really don't understand how much more I can fix this. My instructor/trainer/whatever you want to call it tells me to get up and out of the saddle more in between jumps, and to think elbows over knees more (while in two point) to keep myself from getting too forward. I am sure that at some point I will figure it out and get it, but maybe hearing different advice may be beneficial to pick it up faster.
