Sound Again

Due to a series of unfortunate events in which I wrenched my knee, I've been gimping around for about a month.  I couldn't put weight in my stirrup, so it's been a great time to work without stirrups.  I'm sound again, but here's what I've been working on -
Trot work
canter
Look up!
Sit up straight!
Shoulders back!
Rotate that toe in!
etc, etc, etc
That's better.
Elvis, you look great.  Keep doing what you're doing.

Lol, at least Elvis has it all down pat! Clever of you to see an opportunity where most of us would see a problem. I suspect you weren't about to let anything stop you riding again after your last major injury!

I always remember heel down, shoulders back, hands together....
You look great in the saddle, together with Elvis, the perfect pair !

What's that old saying "Making lemonade from lemons?" You have certainly made the best use of your time and you and Elvis look great!
