    doesnt sound silly at all - i am someone who's a bit simple when it comes to converting spoken instructions into my body actually doing it if that makes sense - so i often have to have something explained a few times =- and in a few different ways - before i can convert it into action - it just doesnt come easily to me at all!

    I think this is my issue. Literally, she grabbed my leg shoved it where it should be and went 'NOW LEAVE IT THERE' At least then I had an idea of what I should be doing rather than just pottering about doing what I *think* they want me to be doing.

    you know some of the best ways i learn is to watch a good rider in a lesson - then remember that image - and ride myself in an arena with mirrors - so i can actually SEE what i am doing rather than just feel it
    does your RS have mirrors in the arena? if not then could you go to a RS that does - even for one lesson?

    2 of the schools do.....my old RS did and I didn't really use them, but I wasn't trying to 'better' my riding there, if that makes sense? I was just being a passenger and having a ride. I might ask if we can go out to the big outdoor or the liveries school and see if it makes a difference. I do find that having pictures taken helps - sometimes when I feel okay I look at the photos after and think wtf?! and vice versa.

    Well done!
    The lightbulb moments are what make all the struggling worthwhile.
    Sometimes all it takes is a different pair of eyes/perspective to see a better way to help you with a problem, which this RI obviously has.

    Horses are for life not just for riding

    Well done! Pictures look fab ... and you look rather pro in clean jods and smart top and shiny gaiters

    all the gear and no idea?!
    Only when things do not interest one, can one give a really unbiased opinion; no doubt the reason why an unbiased opinion is absolutely valueless.
