Dressage Solutions: Correct Your Seat and Posture

Try this tip from Janice Dulak.

To correct your seat and posture…

Imagine your pelvis as an old-fashioned goldfish bowl. To maintain your posture while you ride, keep the water in the bowl level. If your pelvis is tipped forward, the water will pour out onto the horse’s withers. If your pelvis is tipped backward, you will pour the water out onto the haunches. —Janice Dulak
