For me it was the trot that was hard....the canter was easy
I will try that. Ha for me I am very comfortable at the trot but am to nervous to canter. I have done it before alot but I have fallen off at the canter also and it kinda shook me up. But I really want to try it. Is it scary at first?Is it harder to canter without stirrups or bareback? Would going no stirrups help my balance?

Definately no stirrups will help your balance, but if you aren't comfortable cantering in a saddle then don't try it bareback until you can in a saddle.
I do find bareback in general helps balance you and teaches the horse to listen to your leg. Sonny responds better to my legs now then he does to my hands

For the first 2 weeks I used a bareback pad...it helps and mine had a handle I could hold on to if I lost my balance

oh I am fine at the canter with the saddle I could do that no handed but it is bareback and no stirrups where I lose my balance. And I don't own a bareback pad. Maybe I can borrow one. I usually hold mane when bareback . I have cantered bareback before but did not feel balanced. I will try leaning back. I have been working with Doc on listening to my legs over my hands so I can hold on with my hands. I am not afraid of falling it's just quite uncomfotable I will work at it. I might not even go no stirrups cause I have better balance bareback . Thanks for the advice!

I just can't get over how much better he looks since you moved him. And your position has improved greatly too!!! Keep up the good work!

Yeah doesn't he look alot better?!
He is definitely the lowest on the pecking order due to he has lots of bite marks now, but he has made some good friends there....which I'm happy about!
