My first show is in 2 months and my lower leg still swings a lot. I jump 2’6 in equitation and hunter divisions.
I need some advice as how to stop my leg from swinging while sitting at the canter and while in half-seat. I only go 1-2 days a week to my barn because it is 1.5 hours away, so some advice for stuff I can do at home along with stuff I can do on the horse would be greatly appreciated!
My leg kind of swings
like a rocking chair, if you can visualize that. I tend to lean forward at the canter and need to lean back more.
So apparently my horse just has a super rocky and unbalanced canter, because I rode a different horse the other day and my leg was perfectly still in perfect position. I don’t know if this changes anything, should I still work harder on getting strong lower leg or is there a different solution to this.
