Okay, this is a bit embarrassing and a question I feel I can’t ask my instructor.
We were doing a lot of sitting trot in class last night – so much in fact that I’ve hurt myself in err, umm an intimate female area.
Our teacher is always telling us to tuck our bottom underneath us, but what exactly does that mean? I’ve interpreted it as kind of tilting your pelvis forward, but it shouldn’t hurt down there should it? Am I getting is all wrong?
Everyone else was complaining last night how much their thighs were killing then but all I could think was “never mind my thighs, my **** is killing me!!!!”
Haha BEEN THERE!
so tilting your pelvis forward isn't quite right. Think of bringing your belly button and try to touch it to your tailbone. It's the opposite of arching your back, its engaging your abs as well as protects yourself and makes you a more effective rider!
