If you are a rider, you have likely been told to “bring your shoulders back” or “sit up”.
These two pieces of riding advice are well intentioned but when misunderstood, they only make the rider less secure – more off balance, unable to move with the horse, and prone to a fall.
Yes, it is true you don’t want to slouch, lean forward, or be hunched over. But when you literally pull your shoulders back, it creates tension that makes you stiff. In other words, you won’t ride as well.
Join HorseClass instructor Kaitlyn McGarvey in this 6 minute video as she explains the right way to do “shoulders back” and “sit up”.
