I love this bit of video and I hate this bit of video.
I love it because Rusty and I are doing so good. From first realizing I had so many issues to work on with trying to sit this horse bareback while he skittered nervously beneath me to a fairly secure seat and him listening calmly. It’s a big change from a month ago.
I hate it because I have been working so hard on my seat. My hips are contorted in all sorts of painful and terrible directions trying to force my legs to hang down straight. I was so proud of how good I was doing. Looking at this though,I can see that they are still sticking out in front of me! I see a few good moments, so there must be some improvement.
I don’t believe I can get them any more beneath me. I just don’t bend that way.
