    Tbh I don't think your doing too bad. I adore bareback riding and have a better day without a saddle than with. In the summer I always ride bareback so I can wear shorts. I'd say bringing your legs under you would help. I don't really bother with my toes bareback as I always thought that was just to stop your feet from riding in the stirrups. I don't find it makes any difference without a saddle.

    I wouldn't worry about him hollowing out at all until you can sort yourself out(something I was not taught) although bareback pads are comphy, I don't think they provide as much protection to the horses back as people think. Also I think riding without a pad will make it uncomfortable for anyone to get the position wrong bareback so you should find it a lot easier to get the right position. When I used a bareback pad I found I was sitting wrong because it was comfy, take that away and to be comfy the position must be right.

    That's just what I've found with my horse, she too has long strides and is very comfy.

    Honestly, I think you ride quite similarly with and without the saddle- it's not the best ever, but not terrible either. I think part of it is attributed to his big movement, because it's really quite big. You just have to focus on tightening your core and loosening your hips. It's such a weird sensation at first and you'll feel like slipping off the back (riding bareback) but you'll get used to it :)

    He's such a good boy for you- I can tell you two make a great pair.

    Thank you for your response! I have been having a lot of trouble with how big he moves, so I will work on what you said.
    And thank you! He is a saint. We have come a long way together

    I'm inclined to tilt my pelvis back to put me on my glutes. This rounds my back a little but my shoulders remain over my hips. My spine becomes disconnected from the pelvis which allows it to roll with the motion. I learned this when riding TBs with high withers.

    The biggest issue that I see is the chair seat. You lean a bit far back (in my opinion), and your feet go a tad too far forward.

    It's definitely a good start, though~
