STOP SCRUBBING WITH THE HEELS!
Rider's who scrub with their heels are usually totally unconscious of their aid giving patterns and the consequences for it. However I see this incorrect aid giving time and time again both in real life and on TV programs which purport to show good riders demonstrating. This can be rather destructive when adding in spurs to the situation.
Retraining your ability to give good legs aids requires an understanding of what a good leg aid is, the mechanics of giving one and then a fierce determination to keep your leg still and apply leg aids in a very conscious manner.
