Who has watched me riding knows it well; my sitting trot needs improvement. Desperately. And I know it well; I go mad every time I think about this. And my instructors both in Crete and England are often frustrated. Why? Why can’t I trot like other beginners who also ride just once a week?
So, my instructors have reached the following conclusions:
So, yes. All these get mixed up, I guess, making my sitting trot infuriatingly messy. And the problem is, that even if your instructor sits there screaming instructions at you all day, everyday, your own effort is what matters the most. Especially if you know what to do, but simply can’t do it!
But I’m determined to fix this, ladies and gentlemen! I’ve been serching around for tutorials with exercises and demonstrations. So, here’s what I’ve been watching today, focusing on what I can do during the week-long break. I hope to see some progress, sometime soon!
Any other suggestions?
