Cantering... PLEASE HELP!
I have been riding over 4 years now. I can canter, gallop, and jump well. Recently i had a video taken of me riding, and i noticed MANY problems. my one big problem is that i keep my legs infront of the girth. and my other problem is i seam to really bounce in the saddle at a canter. If i canter with no stirups i am perfectly fine! I was adopted and i have very tight calves. I have been working on stretching them, and keeping my heels down. If I lowered my stirups would that help? I ride a 14 hand pony most of the time, if I ride this one very stubborn, cranky, and fast mare, my legs are fine, and i do bouncy around,still! Please help, i need to figure out what i am doing wrong! I need to work on lots, and i am willing to get all the help I need!
