I am fairly athletic; I can run and hit a ball, but I am not good at anything. It always strikes me rather funny that I coach my team in events that I can't do myself. I mean honestly, I have to take a YouTube tutorial each spring to remind myself about the finer points of each event.
It got me thinking about riding coaches and trainers. I realized that you don't really have to be a great rider to be a great trainer (although I am sure it helps). The flip side is also very true - great riders don't necessarily make great teachers.
It seems that in track and field as well as jumping and dressage, adding more leg, watching where you're going, and using your hind end well go a long way towards making you successful.
Go, Sweaney's Stallions!
