What secret? It's called work & practise. Tip? Practise it more often, it gets easier & you get better.

Honey if you were lookin' for easy, you picked the wrong sport. This is horse riding, not horse sitting.

Practice loosening up, which is against human nature (yet so is most of the things we have taught the horse to accept against nature for them too.) but that's the only way to ride.

There is no secret, just hard work and learning to be the boss of every muscle in your body, so you can tighten and loosen when necessary. Once you can do that, it's easy sailing because you build muscle memory.

Until then, riding lessons and keep on practicing. Learn to melt into your horse, stretch down, and enjoy the ride. Don't brace, push, or force anything.

Haha thanks guys and yeah I know I just have to practice. I got the chance to ride for a hour yesterday after doing some work around the barn and I think I'm doing better! I still wish there was some magic secret. I think you all are keeping stuff from me.
