I'd say open your chest and roll your shoulders back.

Thanks QtrBel :) That's a long term habit I've been trying to break for years, and without a coach to yell at me for it they just creep forward again. I tend to focus more on my horse than myself, which isn't necessarily a bad thing considering she's still learning, but at the same time I feel like if I was more correct she'd learn better!

You're here asking. That says something about your drive and "want" to improve. That in itself speaks volumes. You're lovely together. It is easy to see the relationship you have. You'll get where you want to get. Just imagine each of us barking out orders to you.

Thank you! I like to think she loves me nearly as much as I love her, but really I think she just enjoys her job

So today I tried to take everyone's advice into account :) I'm still not really getting my butt under me enough and my lower leg is uh... not good. But I think my release was better? :)

Ikora will be introduced to oxers and possibly fill over the Easter long weekend, but we'll be focusing on flatwork until then.
