    Lol, it happens.

    1. Girth was too loose.
    2. You were balancing using your hands, bracing against the movement of the horse and bouncing a lot, which caused you to fall when the horse turned.

    I know I'm so confused as to how to "post" in a Western saddle and I've been off for a year so my core muscles are HORRIBLE. The girth wasn't loose to begin with I think I forgot to secure it.

    Couldn't get the fall vid to load but the riding vid shows just a lack of balance and rhythm. Rhythm takes time, balance can be worked on. (don't tell anyone because it'll ruin my cranky old cowboy image, but I sit on one of those Pilates balls and balance... plus it's good for a tired backside) lol Keep riding!

    Ok it loaded, going to have to dock you points for not sticking the landing! Lol

    Obviously balance, if you are balanced you could ride a saddle without a cinch.

    The rest seems to come with balance, in my opinion. If you are balanced you are more relaxed, not tense. With out tension you can move and feel the horse. With balance, feel and relaxation you don't feel the need to hold yourself onto the horse by gripping the reins.

    Nice landing...tee he :)

    Glad you weren't hurt! You feel off that horse like a sack of potatoes. You have no effective legs or seat. That comes with practise and I highly suggest some lessons, it makes learning your balance, cues, etc much easier, less haphazard and gentler for your horse. We can all laugh, but you fell off rather easily and a had a loose cinch, that could have been way worse. You have the passion & desire to ride a horse correctly, enjoyably and effectively, now it's going to take work. Good Luck!

    Thanks for the posts all. I know my balance and rhythm are waaay off at the moment. Second time I rode in about a year. I also gained 70 lbs during that period also so I'm trying to re-teach myself. I will post more video as time passes so you guys can help me with my progress.

    :) great fall so glad you are okay! Next time try and think about tucking and rolling away rather than hanging on and almost going underneath the the horse once you get to that "point of no return". In fact, bailing off while the horse is standing (if you have a horse that is calm enough) is a good thing to practice once in awhile.

    Have you got a trainer or someone who could help you with riding on the lounge line? It is really helpful to develop good balance because all you are worried about is your seat since the person on the line is doing all the steering. That way you can drop the reins so you won't be tempted to balance on them and concentrate on your core.
