How can riding behind the motion increase extension of stride?

Using Behind The Motion To Create Extension

Open wide the hip angle so that the upper body actually leans backward behind the vertical. As your seat bones push deep into the saddle, you should feel the horse extending his stride as long as your hands remain soft on the contact. Although this is totally unacceptable in the Show Ring, it can be a useful tool in training~!
