Re: [RC] Equitation Tip of the Day - Don Huston

That's where I alternate pressure on the stirrups, left and right, as if I was peddling a bicycle. Not a good idea for very long but completely eliminates the post. I'm sure that Kat is cringing that the subject line still has "Equitation" in it. X;{

The "bicycle thing" ? What's that?

Hello Dave,
I'm not Kat and I don't equitate :-[ (you ladies do ride nice) but
I do know how to make my horse's back sore. My guy also has a
smooth slow jog but if I start doing the "bicycle thing" with my
feet in the stirrups and sitting then I'm grinding the saddle back
and forth and it makes his skin tender. As long as I keep my legs
still and flex in the gut or lightly post we do fine. I also try to
mix up the gates and style so we don't overdo any particular muscle
group but currently I only have 2 muscle groups left....old and
flabby....I'm sure that my horse would agree. :'(
