I recently started taking riding lessons in exchange for helping my instructor take care of her horses. I've only had 2 lessons so far and anytime I go faster than a walk I immediately grab the saddle horn. My instructor told me that that's not what its for lol! But she also says its ok until I get more confidence in myself for riding! So my question is besides the stirrups (which my instructor has to make very short so my feet will reach and fit in) and bridal, am I suppose to hold on to anything else when my horse paddy gator (the horse she assigned to me for lessons) trots or gallops (only galloped once when my instructor told me to let my horse go when we were ridin up hill)?
