I think its all about exerperience and getting a feel.

Most of the time you can feel the horse start to tense up underneath you. And a thing I noticed with alot of riders is when this happens they do tense up and start to pull back. If you ride forward, then you give them little time to think about whats happening and more about what you are instructing to do. Sit deep, ride forward and give a good hard 'get up' if you have to.

I still get caught of by spooks everynow and then, but after riding tons of different kinds of horses most of the time I just sit thru them like they don't even happen. I just keep chatting away to the rider next to me, wven when both are horses are jumping around like loonies.

I do agree with this... I was having a conversation with my fella about it afterwards and decided that the fun of horse riding is that it is another living thing and you are learning how best to work together and if there were never any challenges or anything it would be pretty boring!

Thanks Shanoona, I think I may have to take a leaf out of your book and start spending a LOT more time without stirrups, I spent a lot of time carrying my 3 year old daughter and think this is affecting how I hold my body when I ride and putting out my balance.

Bsms, that saddle looks so comfy! Being over in the UK, it seems a bit like English is the only way sometimes! Is an Aussie saddle for Western style riding or English? There is a place up the rode that offers Western riding for a little extra, although I am not sure whether it's just paying for a different saddle really. I have always fancied having a go though, it looks like it could help teach me to sit with the horses movement much better. Glad you've had success with your horses and your back is improving - hope it continues to do so!

Well done to everyone who can sit spooks without batting an eyelid, I was the same as a child and it makes you feel awesome doesn't it lol.
