[RC] crooked horses - sbolinge

When my hips started going bad, I was still riding and I managed to make two perfectly straight horses crooked. Both of them started out going down the trial straight with equal diagonals. As time went by and the miles accumulated, both horses started going down the trail a little tilted to the left and developed a rough diagonal at the trot on the right. I know now i was riding crooked, trying to compensate for pain and weakness on one side. Thing is, even with new hips and no pain, I need to re train my body/mind not to ride like that....old habits are really hard to break!
