First Year Student

Stiff Body.  Stiff legs and arms.  BOUNCE!  BOUNCE!  I’m hopeless!  My arms can relax and follow most of the time.  But my legs absolutely refuse to cooperate.  This is really depressing.  I have 2 different instructors trying to figure out what part of my body (or parts of my body) is at fault.  So far we have investigated and make changes in my upper body, the angle of my seat, whether or not I am sitting on my pockets, my thighs, knees, ankles, and…Maybe it’s my brain!  I could always try riding on my head.  I would probably have better luck upside-down in the saddle waving my legs around in the air!  At least they would be moving.
