Body Position in the two point
Okay endurance riders...I know you all do it. Now tell me how you do it. The two point at the extended trot. Phebes has so much impulsion in that gait that if I don't anchor myself somewhere (mane, saddle horn, pommel) I get shoved back to the cantle and become very unbalanced. Currently I'm working on my posting trot which is going well. Once that is afixed in mental and muscle memory we will again speed up and I would like to be as balanced in a two point. What I find is that I am just not stable in the two point position. So I'm sure I'm not doing it right, however...I don't know what right is. What should body position be? What should leg position be? ~E.G.
