In canter... when & why did you feel you were ready to let go of the saddle/neckstrap/mane when you were learning canter?
I'm still struggling with canter, i still bounce but getting there abit now but I'm worried I'm holding myself back as I'm the only one in my lesson who holds on to the saddle and If you add up the no.of years I've been riding I've been riding far longer than the others in my lesson
. Just wondering if I should just let go and get on with it... just worried I'll fly off If I do even though mum said I looked fine last week, I know I'm still not going properly with the horse (my aim for tomorrow is to try and move my hips with the horse, i tried last time but just couldn't get it, its like my body doesn't follow my brain lol). I was also wondering if holding the front of the saddle is blocking me from moving with the horse as my arms are forced in front of me! Would I be better taking a piece of mane instead? (we don't seem to use neckstraps so i dont think thats an option!)
Advice/experiences would be very muchly appreciated, cookies for reading!
