Truthful Tuesday: Happy Hands Edition
Bob Braswell helped me at the show, and after I found the base spot in the school ring he told me "You have to calm those happy hands." Lol. I'd call them manic hands, but happy sounds nicer. And he's totally right. The next time, I came through the turn, put my leg on, and rode up to the gap. The horse jumped AMAZING! But it was SO HARD for me to just put my hands down and not take back. SO HARD. I really wonder how I'm going to break this habit on my own. I guess it's a non issue at least until I have a horse to jump. But definitely something to work on.
Do you have happy hands? Or are you more of a deer in headlights when you don't see the spot you want? Any tips on how to get the hands to just sit chilly and calm the eff down?
