Balancing your horse
My horse is 5 y-o Morab/Paint/Draft. When I try to trot him, he gets really jerky and stiff and he feels really off-balance. I don't post on him cause I don't want to have him to ahve to help balance me too. My friend said he's off balance. Will he just learn how to balance himself or is there something I should do to help him balance? I keep my seat and hands quiet. When I lunge him, his trot seems really smooth and balanced but when I'm on him...it just doesn't look or feel right. Thanks! =)
To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
