Most of you know that I am a beginner to riding horses and owning my very own horse. Anyways, I moved my horse to the fairgrounds in hope that she would listen to me and not do her own thing and completely ignoring me. I had complete SUCCESS! Today she did everything with a few things here and there but she took the bit,she let me saddle her and tighten the cinch,she walked when I told her,trot when I told her,and loped. She would do her turns and stops on a dime. It was nice seeing the change. I believe she doesn't hate me anymore,hahaa
Now my question is how do you master a sit down trot? I was bouncing all over the place but I could lope with no problem. It was a perfectly smooth ride. When she would go a faster trot that is when I was going all over the place even if I sunk down in my seat and put my weight into the stirrups. I could not stay in. I even tried balancing myself with my core muscles. How do I stay on without bouncing...I look very silly I am sure. Any tips are greatly appreciated.
Does anyone else have a horse that has a bouncy trot? My mom even had trouble staying on my horse. Her horse has a smooth trot.
