well im a national champion English rider, so i hope this helps:) When you ride English, you have to sit tall and straight and keep evrything almost in a straight line....sit up tall and straight and keep ur head up high with a smile (if u are showing) keep your heels down and ur legs slightly bent u want to keep ur legs underneath you..keep your hands bent like a right angle and keep them tucked into your sides...u cn put ur hands lower thogh at the walk...sometimes this keeps the horse more calm...so yea i think i covers most of it have fun! English is the best! i luhh it! ive been doing it since i was 6....so yea hav fun:) <3
