Please Get Your EQright by Chloe (the horse)

It’s been over a month since Andrea received her very own EQright, the real-time equitation feedback device she first blogged about HERE, and the results are in. Has she gotten her equitation right?

Well, my back is less sore now because she is sitting more balanced, which is clearly a positive side effect (for me), but I also have less reason to buck her, which is obviously a negative side effect (for me).
