Chair Seat?

I'm teaching my friends and family how to ride, and I have noticed when my dad rides, he has a chair seat. He has only ridden a horse about 7 or 8 times but I was wondering should I just not pay attention to it till he is more exsperienced or teach him the correct seat now. If so how can I? Thanx!

Correct it right away, but be patient if he doesn't get it right away - remember, you have a zillion things to remember when you're riding!
But definitely correct it - better to get in a good habit right off the bat than let a bad habit form then try to correct it.
Good on him for taking it up though!!

Is it because his stirrups are too short? Maybe :)

Thats what I was thinking it was. I'm going to make them longer and maybe that will help.

Well since he just started, you may want to try telling him the most important thing until he gets it down, and then maybe keep doing it for a couple of lessons, than start on another important part. After awhile, riding becomes second nature.

Yess it definitely does become 2nd nature! Just keep working with him.

might be a good place to start. My hubby had a chair seat when he first started riding and that was because I didnt have long enough stirrup leathers for him. Once I got ones that were long enough he was fine :) you can sit that way if the stirrups are the right length

I would say correct it right away.

What breed of horse is he learning to ride on?

For gaited horses the so called chair seat is disered....and is the correct way to ride a gaited horse. Your supposed to sit on your butt and roll your hips backwards...like sitting in a chair.


But on anyother breed that is not gaited...its not correct.

hmm...
Well, chairseat is considered a bad thing here, and we only have gaited horses, so I wouldn´t say it is disered by all gaited breed riders !
