thank you! I had ordered a coat but it fit really funny..and not enough time to alter it. I just put a zip up althetic thing over my shirt and tie...it made my stomach look very poochy with the pockets in the front, but hey I saved almost 200 on the coat!
I can see something in your action shot that may be related to the problem you mentioned in your other thread. I don't want to start a critique session, but it's literally jumping out at me having just read the other thread right before this one. You have a fairly typical hunter hand position at that moment in time. Holding the hands very low like that requires effort to keep the elbows open and wrists straight (especially in the tall bodied dressage position) which creates a rigidity in the arm that makes it very difficult for the rider to truly feel how much contact and give they have. This can create a hard, or irregular contact for the horse which in turn can create the hanging on the bit issues you mentioned before. Exercises I've done to help my hand position include riding with a crop horizontally under both thumbs (it's awkward, but for short periods it forces me to keep thumbs on top, and hands higher because it gets really awkward if my hands drop), and riding with the reins going to my elbows (not literally, but making my hands and wrists relaxed and nothing more than the connection between elbow and rein) which really helps to get that straight line between elbow and bit.
