Today we shall do three things.

First, open up your hips with some stretches, or mobility work or painball. We want to hit the front of the thigh today. Check if you don't know how to do this. Search "hip opener" for instance.

Second, ride your horse(s). Focus today on the change of rein. Try to find if you're really weighting the inside- stirrup to initiate the change in bend. If you have it, use haunches in, try changing from haunches in to haunches in on a figure 8. The change occurring through the middle of the figure, obviously. Do this at walk, trot, and canter.

Finally, YouTube the exercise "hollow rocks", then do it with following focus: never make a clunking sound while gently rocking back and forth. Two repeats for as long as possible.
