Many of you posted exercises to do at the halt, walk, trot and canter and gave descriptive images of how and what to feel. What I was doing was locking my leg and doing that meant no bend. I also DROPPED my stirrups a few holes. I think I just kept shortening and shortening that my leg was so jammed up there was no bend. My saddle aslo played a huge role in my jumping ahead so it is going to get fixed this week. My coach has been a great help too but I needed to read a lot of different tips to find the one that worked best for me. I am so glad I have gotten this sorted out. These are pictures of earlier this year, at a show and then yesterday, no not perfect but night and day from before. This has been my first jumping lesson in almost 2 weeks because my coach has been sick so I have taken that 2 weeks to practice on my own so hopfully it will only get better from here! It looks like I'm pinching but trust me.. I'm not lol!
