I Videoed my ride yesterday....
Let's just say that it was kind of like those Memes
|What I think I do|
and what I actually Do
Ok maybe these are a bit extreme, I am well aware I don't ride like Charlotte, and we are not quite as bad as the bronc picture. But I think I am riding and have soft hands ect. but just like in the picture my right hand is going all over the place. And my body subtly rocks side to side so I am unintentionally see- sawing her mouth all the time...
And I think what is my problem!
I guess the first part of fixing a problem is knowing it exists, back to putting my knuckles together as I ride to keep that rouge right hand in control, I hope that, that will also stop the rocking side to side.
And the worst part was we had a rodeo and the battery died before it could catch it on tape!
On the good side, I got Whin clean enough to be presentable on video, and her frame is slowly but surely sitting more behind and lifting in front.
Also from a feel perspective and video perspective the canter is going great, the last 2 rides Whin has magically become very light and soft. From a video perspective my right hand is more under control and my shoulders don't rock back and forth.
So Whin is doing great and I ride lousy, ohh well I am easier to fix!
