Sorry , but video is not available to view.
I have another question; why would you have your leg on as hard as you can get it? Is this something which is taught in jumping? I would think that woudl be exhausting and hard on your horse, too.
One thing I notice about some hunter riders who have too much bend (hollow) in their lower back (this is what you are talking about,, no?), it's that they also have really rigid arms and elbows and are trying to reach as far forward as possible with their hands , hence they also lean forward. They do this because they need to have the rein short enought to be able to effect the horse, but since the horse is running along with no real connection to the bit, no give in his poll nor bend in his neck, it makes it hard to have short enought reins without the rider reaching way up the neck.
Any of this sound familiar?
