4Rider’s Position and SeatKeeping in balance with the horse6.56.5liked this riders quiet approach.. today you are not chiropractically level.. left shoulder and hip are high and forward ( generally means you have more weight and strength in your right leg and seat bone) , rider to avoid double bounce in posting which drags on horses forwardness-- get your feet into stirrups until the CENTER of the BALL of the foot ( crease line in your boot centered on the center of the iron) .. this will support you when you step down on the stirrup to go up in the post and will keep your leg more correct and stable)
30
5Rider’s Correct and Effective Use of the AidsCorrect bend and preparation of transitions66accuracy c-lines ( there are 2 !!! needs more outside aids through short sides and corners for balance and bend
31
neat team.. great horse for a developing rider. work for rider to be more level at seat- shoulders and to be gin to get more impulsion in trot tour with the idea of developing rounder elastic connection with horse.
