I thought you guys would appreciate this :D In a continuing effort to fix my leg/knee pinchy/position issues, my trainer put me on a lunge line with no reins today! W/T/C/ and 2 - pt with no reins, and then with no stirrups and no reins.

It was actually pretty fun, and I'm hoping to be able to translate that feeling into riding with the reins. :D

Yay!! My sister (my at-home coach when living in the middle of nowhere) did the same for me, but over a jump and just no reins. It was such a great exercise to make my seat more independent and work on trust with my horse! And it was a BLAST!! :)

I feel your pain! lol My trainer made my last lesson almost completely no stirrups(w/t/c and jumping) and then the last ten minutes we had to jump a grid with one hand behind our backs. My horse decided to be a fruitloop but I survived! I'm super sore though! I'm actually happy when we have no stirrup lessons because I know my legs can use all the help they can get!
