Bad Chair Seat and Leaning Forward

I posted this in this section because I know it can be a pretty common thing, but I was wondering if you could watch my latest video and tell me exactly how, and so on. I don't mean to do this, but I just do. And, it makes my canter not so comfy cause I bounce a lot. I am always told to sink all my weight into my heels and hips, and sometimes it works, and sometimes its a little bit hard to do so. And advise?

Dear, Youtube blocked your video. Did you use a copyrighted song?

Can't see the video but most of the time when I've see a chair seat it's because someone is bracing against the stirrups which makes them totally tight and unable to flex with the horse, especially at a canter.

I agree with Dreamcatcher. When I was getting back into riding I had a terrible chairseat from bracing on my stirrups. The only thing that really fixed it was lots of jogging / trotting without stirrups. It really forced me into a better position.

I was thinking about the leaning forward and it depends on HOW you're doing it whether or not it's a bad thing and your discipline. For instance, I've ridden all my life, Hunt Seat. Now I'm switching over to Western Pleasure or Stock Seat. I have a tendency to want to roll forward into a more forward seat which is incorrect for WP but not a bad thing in Hunter classes. If you are closing your hip angle and falling forward at the waist, that's a different issue and one that loads of practice will help, just like the chair seat thing. Once you're more secure in the saddle, I'd expect both things to improve somewhat if not be totally erradicated.

That's really weird... I can see the video, and I bought the song from iTunes. It said when I posted it that it would work in most countries. I can post it a different way If you would like to see. And not things to hard, what do you mean by bracing on my stirrups? Sorry for such a stupid question.

Sorry, I guess it is because I have been logged in to my youtube the whole time. I will fix that in a little while and make it more fun. =D

When you buy a song from iTunes you just have the right to play it for your own listening, not to make it available for others to listen to. That's probably why the video was blocked. (The song will "work in most countries" in the sense that you can play it on your devices - computer, ipod, etc - in most countries.)

Can you repost the video without music? I think all here care more about seeing your seat so they can help you than listening to the music.

Yes I can, and I will. Mostly the cantering you will see is in front or after a jump. I will post it on youtube because it loads a lot faster, then post a link.
