Lesson last night went meh. After such a successful week of gymnastics and a fun hunter pace over the weekend with hellomylivia, I really thought my right leg issue had been taken care of! Turns out, I’m fine… until rollbacks.
We did about a dozen rollbacks, and my friggin right leg would not stay on, so energy kept being wasted to the outside, and then I’d have a tight jump over the fence and feel like a dunce!
We eventually figured out (after about a dozen more dizzying rollbacks) that if I sit deep in my saddle, I can wrap my legs around Gracie so much better. However, I need to be able to stand and sit with my leg on the whole time. One step at a time I guess.
Next week: magic chaps.
Magic chaps aside, does anybody else have any tips to keep their legs wrapped around a super tiny and skinny horse? #helpplease #ittybittymarebigproblems
