Yay! I'm beggining to finally SEE my distances
It feels like I've really moved up in my riding. Now If I just trust myself I instinctively know exactly where to adjust, whether to stay still, whether I need to open the stride, at least 8 feet before the jump. Or if it's a bit too late, whether it would be more risky to get really long or painfully deep, The only time I screw up is when I overthink things, or if my trainer reminds me to do something I'm already planning on doing, which results in my doing what she said only more exaggerated, which usually screws with my distance too lol. Leaning back also helps me get a better view.
At what point did you begin to really get the hang of your distances? Was it a result of a particular method(like counting strides etc), or did it just come to you?
