More of the same…

More of the same this evening. Exploring weight aids, really concentrating keeping my legs rotated inwards at the hips and trying to let my legs sink down and really drop out of my hip sockets (sounds gross!) Saf seemed to be leaning on her left shoulder as opposed to the usual right one on both reins. I did notice an improvement when concentrating on letting my right leg down more. I gave myself a talking to and took my stirrups away which I always find really beneficial.

Finished by doing some turn on the haunches / walk pirouettes on a loose rein by just weighting the inside seatbone (so right for right and left to go left). I have been faaaar too reliant on my hands for steering (a trait picked up from years of riding schools).

Really pleased, will try to get some video next time.
