It's awesome to have her around though, bc I dont dare try it on my 5yr old arab cross mare. She may be ok with it, but I dont want to chance it! And I have stayed on in one of those arab spooked where they do a 180 spin sideways! I was bareback and for some reason that day she thought the AC unit was going to eat her! My arms bounce alot when I'm in the saddle in a trot though.... I cant seem to get the hang of the flow when in my saddle. It's almost natural when I'm bareback....
Wow, I'm still dreaming of being able to stay in the saddle when the horse spooks! The horse I was on also stopped or stepped sideways once or twice to try and "catch" me sort of. I agree one can feel how to balance much better without a saddle than with one...

Honestly, I dont know if I could do it again to be honest!

And my balance is questionable sometimes, lol.. I was riding at a fun show, and my mare went to go around a barrel.... Let me reword that I THOUGHT we was going to go around the barrel, but she dead stopped from a trot, and backed up! I had to grab her neck to keep from falling LOL! It was close BUT I DIDNT! LOL....

Check it out! The picture looks so much worse than the video, lol...

I haven't read the whole thread, so forgive me if I repeat other's comments.
I had to google the magic seat. ok . .

I wear full seat breeches and they give pretty darn near as good a grip as you'd get with that , if you have some strength in your legs.

I have a pair with pigskin on the inside. man, they are awesome!

No you havent repeated tinyliny! I might try those breeches though! See I have a little hard time squeezing in on my knees SOMETIMES. When I do my pelvic bone (the hard bone at the front of your crotch) POPS! Yea, it's uncomfortable, lol... And I also pop at my tailbone... not sure what is popping there actually, but it does (this happens ALOT, even when I just stand up or something). I have been lifting weights at the gym to try to maybe help stabilize or strengthen myself there. I DONT squeeze when I trot or run. I was talking to my friend about that. I relax and try to let me hips move with her. I have a bad habit of bouncey arms too. I needto learn to squeeze! LOL
