But lesson recaps with no relevant media are gonna get boring, I think. So I want to focus on the biggest weakness in my riding and see what input I can get from you cool folks.
The bottom line is, my right leg is kind of out of control right now. It shoots out forward unless I really think about it. It does this in both saddles, but more in the dressage saddle than the jump saddle. It's not all the time, but it's often enough that it's bugging me, and I expect this has something to do with why Mo takes more offense to my right leg than my left. My left leg is fine. My legs aren't symmetrical anyway, thanks to the massive ankle break I had a few years ago. That ankle is mostly hardware at this point and my left leg just looks bigger than my right as a consequence. So that could be part of it, but I'm not totally convinced that's it.
Let's travel through time, shall we? See where we are.

So that's all the pictures I have that show my right leg doing anything interesting. Lay it on me: What do you think my problem is, and how should I fix it?
