It's just a really rough trot. The kind of trot that makes you feel like you're sitting on a jackhammer. :)

Lol! I'm lucky enough to have both my instructor to go for all parts of my body, not just the particular one.

But thanks for posting - I'll look into it for sure.

MyBoyPuck, I also have that book and it's very helpful. I think it's time for me to do a refresher read and get fine tuned for this seasons riding.

Looks Like a book I need, esp. Staying I need to learn to sit a spinning buck on my mare. Do you believe it would have an western rider sit spinning bucks? My mare has a spooking problem I'm trying to over come.
