[RC] Posture and Pickups - Bruce Weary DC

Naomi said:
" One person, "the horse" gets down on all fours. Another person, "the rider" sits lightly on their back, with a balanced head/shoulder/hip/ankle position, and then the horse is asked to go forward. Peggy or Donna will ask "the horse" how easy it feels to move forward. Then, the rider is asked to go behind the vertical, sitting on their pockets, in a "chair seat". Again, the horse is asked to go forward. Usually there are groans from "the horse". When asked why, "the horse" will say there the rider's weight has shifted to their forehand, and they are almost unable to move. (I know Bruce Weary will have a field day with this!) Try this exercise, and see what you think."

Okay, I'll try it. But I insist on wearing my red felt cowboy hat, fluffy chaps and my matching, pearl handled cap guns to give the experience that realistic feel. Dr Q
