now what a surprise! not

Molly had, of course, put me where she wanted me and I hadn't realised! i wasn't sitting up.

So you'll gather we had a good lesson

lots of circles with the inside hand very wide and lots of small flexions with the fingers....and lots of assorted resistances from herself (she won't be able to tell me any more she doesn't know how to go sideways, she does!)

after about 20 minutes or so (one does lose track of time) RI got on and did the same, and she started relaxing....

then someone else came in the school, who'd a thought it Sunday teatime! - but not to worry, loads of room....

then i got back on... and sat up, LOL. interestingly, the feel is of a chair seat, but i'm not sitting in a chair seat... just shows how much i'd been leaning forwards without realising it!

so we were both relaxed, and Molly was working really nicely after that!

So I'm to do a week of that in walk, and next lesson is next saturday teatime...

Wonderful - it's so great when you feel it's right and things progress!

Wonderful! Sometimes people get into that more forward seat as a defense move. Maybe all the issues with Molly were making you ride that way.

Now all you have to do is repeat "sit up" to yourself every ten seconds or so when you ride alone.

Glad to know Ms. Molly was improving too. Three cheers!!
