My instructor said I do well but I was heavy on the reins at first. Anyways,I decided I am going to purchase my first english saddle and everything that goes with it. I do have one major problem. When I post sometimes my legs swing.Would breeches help? I ride in jeans. I'm ride western. Do you guys have any recommendations for me when first starting out.
My horse isn't big. She is a stocky 14.2 horse...some of you may call her a pony but she's a horse. The thing is she has a big head but a full size dangles at the throat latch and I have to tighten it because the bit was loose and she chomps...do some horses naturally chomp on bits? She does it when she is told to hold still...like if she was bored or something. Also should I get a pony breast collar? Her western one had to have extra holes in it cause it sat too low on her. She doesn't have much for withers and I usually have to sit the pad up a little higher because without a breast collar it will begin to slooowly slide back.
Any info would be great.
