Cathy riding the VLC
In response to a readers request for a picture of Cathy riding I have posted this picture. This is the only photo I could find of Cathy riding the VLC, although there are others. What's most apparent in this photo is the hand position, called 'puppy paws', and the body position which is too far forward. It has been mentioned before, in regards to another photo, that Cathy has almost no lower leg contact. This is Ok if someone is learning to ride, but it's not OK if person purports, as Cathy has done, to be a riding instructor. In addition, I don't want someone in the media critiquing riding, as she has done on FHOTD, who doesn't have the basics under her belt.
