    The most important thing is to sit straight, not hold too much onto the leaping horn with the right leg.

    The horse does not 'want to' run/hollow/try to fool you/etc. The reactions in the horse are caused by the actions set up by the rider. If the rider keeps light inside flexion they will have a steadier contact, which aids in bit acceptance (roundness). And in turn inside flexion (ie seeing the inside eyelashes) also gives control of the tempo from the outside rein connection which is developed from the previous.

    Work in walk, do circles there, get better bit acceptance, then in trot/etc.

    (I have showed/won in side saddle in fei dressage as well as the VA hunter circuit including the Washington National/PA national/Devon/etc.)

    Good work! Cute horse!

    Two things I see, It is hard to see in the video and I do not have sound.
    Is your saddle sitting too far forward in the horse? It looks like it is.
    Again it is hard to see but are you sitting square in the saddle? From the back you should look as if you are riding astride.

    I love sidesaddle and actually rode a clients arab in a really BIG arab show in Denver. I am NOT an arab person, but had fun in the sidesaddle class.

    I'm really super jealous! I've always wanted to ride side saddle, but don't know anyone in the area who does. Some day that will be my next saddle though... some day. Looks like you're having fun with it

    I always thought it would be fun to do sidesaddle! The closest i've gotten is sitting sideways on my horse bareback. We tried trotting but it didn't go so well. But you look like you're doing a fantastic job with him :)
