He has a nice long back, long legs, high withers so a nice long stride...that is very verticle. *shudder* I can't ride it for more than a dozen strides unless I "sit" it in sort of a half-seat. Posting it is impossible for me as it just throws me off so badly. Sitting it is a joke too. He has almost no topline..he's gaining weight and muscle but its taking a while.
Do you have any suggestions on helping me learn to ride his trot in a ballanced mannor? I can trot him down the length of the arena in my half seat position, but that's about it. I worry about hurting his back if I go any further.
