Perfect your pelvis position
The secret to maintaining a good position in all paces is a soft and supple seat, allowing your pelvis to follow the movement of your horse. Imagine your pelvis is a bowl full of water. Your aim is to keep the water in the bowl. If you tilt your pelvis forward, the water will tip out of the front of the bowl. If you tilt backwards, the water will pour out of the back of bowl. As you work through the exercises on the following pages, your focus needs to be on maintaining your pelvis in a neutral position.
