How do I keep my lower legs connected? Do your heels come up in the trot...



"What is your lower leg doing at the trot?  Does it seem to have a mind of its own?"

Trudy makes this awareness exercise looks easy, but is not.  It will make you aware of what you are doing with your lower legs. This is when a rider is not keeping their seat over their lower legs.  Expect to be surprised at how often you drop the iron. You will also find that it will be harder with one leg that the other.  That will be your weaker leg.  Do not use this exercise for beginner riders.

What do you see happening with Trudy?  Can you see how this awareness exercise can make a difference in your riding position
