Oh the mentor is starting to get perturbed! :)
Howdy! I'm new to the horse world... so let's say i'm master my irons and now just need to work on balance. I have no picture for my posture but i know that my butt can stick out and my legs fall backwards.... so how do i keep my legs still.... any tips or do i just concentrate more? My mentor hasn't been around since fair season and we never got to the next lesson.... :(

Make sure you aren't pinching with your knees. Don't ask me how I know this!!!!

I have found that as my legs got stronger over the last few months, my legs have really calmed down and are now steady. I also constantly remind myself to keep my legs long with weight in my heels so that I dont use my knees or reins for balance.
