Am I just weak? (Riding uphill)
I like to go into two point when going up most hills as opposed to just leaning forward. I don't have a problem at the walk. But at the trot an canter I find myself sliding to the back of the saddle. If I wasn't holding onto the mane I'd probably slide right off the back of my horse, lol. Small, slopey hills I can handle at any gait. It's just those steep hills that get me. I think it's because my legs aren't strong enough. What do you guys think?
There's another possibility that just occurred to me. My half chaps are suede and they've been used so much that they're a little slick. Maybe I should get some leather chaps.
