Tip of the Day: Push don’t pull!

DSC04871I had a brilliant jumping lesson last week with my childhood hero Malcolm Pyrah, and one thing he said more than once was “PUSH don’t pull”… I really did think I was being light with my hands and strong with my legs, but apparently I still didn’t have the ratio quite right, so more work needed in that department. My dressage trainer says that the leg: hand ratio should be about 8:1 iirc, which is quite suprising, but I bet a lot of top riders have it mastered!
