Do you find your shots don’t go the direction you wanted?
Is the ball going too far to the left?
Do you find yourself switching from offside to near side unintentionally as you carry the ball?
The first step in improving your aim is giving the ball space. We all have a tendency to ride too close, or let our horses drift too close, to the ball.
Instead increase the distance between your horse and the ball and give yourself room to get around and take a proper stroke.
This will allow the ball to travel straight forward. Or better yet, open to the right, and allow you to carry the ball easily down the field.
Get on the field and get to work!
