Hey. This will be my first post and thread so hi to everyone
My question is about my lower leg posistion.
When I'm trotting or cantering my leg comes up and I grip with my knees. I don't mean to do it and it's been a problem since I started riding. I explained to my instructor and I've had lessons without stirrups and I had a lunge lesson and my lower leg was perfect, but seeing as I only go twice a month it's like I forget the information and my leg just weakens again.
I do try really hard to keep my leg down and I want to start jumping lessons soon and I don't think I'll be able to get far with the way my posistion is atm.
Like last week my instructor, Dee lengthened my stirrups so I really had to keep my leg down and I don't think it really helped.
Is there any exercises I can do to strengthen it or something? I get so frustrated with it now and I just want to make the most of out my lessons and I'd like to move onto other things but it's just keeping me back.
