"Sitting pretty in the saddle" doesn't always cut it in the horsemanship ring. Here's three horseback riding tips for correct upper body position in the horsemanship class, including shoulders, posture, head and arms.
Relax..Relax, that is the key. Soften the thigh, the ankle the knee. To close the leg, you use the calf. Let the seat work on the back half. Use that core a little bit more. Don't let the hands take all the galore. Elbows in for out is a sin, and don't forget to lift the chin. Controlling the angles soft n' light, helps any equestrian to ride a horse right. -Kairen Jamieson
