Problem with jumping ahead!
In my jumping lessons the instructor gets us to go into a light seat when we are jumping, but I always find this makes me jump ahead, I cannot find the rhythm when I'm not sitting to the canter! I also have an issue with corners when in a light seat, it's as though the horses know my leg isn't strong enough in that position and they take advantage and cut the corners.
I wanted some tips on riding better in a light seat, because my instructor is an incredible rider of 30 years, and I trust that she is teaching me the correct way to learn to jump, I just only had one jump go nice and smoothly today and I'm a bit annoyed at myself for it.
Even if I do sit when jumping my part loan horse by myself :P
Tips and exercises to created stronger legs too?
To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!
