    not cool at all.

    Today I discovered my balance sucks. Bad.
    Weird. I went to ride my mustang gelding bareback for fun, and it was no fun.
    Way off balance and couldn't sit his trot to save my life.
    Weird .. Yes because my other 2 I am stuck to like glue. Never come off their back at all.


    What can I do to fix this ?

    Is your horse narrow? I know my moms paint is narrow (we think he's part mustang.) and I will slip around a bit. My QH is very big and muscular and I can stay on w/t/c/g and my paint is very tall and has a high withers but I fit in JUSt right on his back and he's not narrow at ALL! I find narrow horses are harder to stay on (also small horses for me as im 5'8..)

    I am the exact same! I can ride my friends horse WTC bareback. But I CAN NOT for the life of me sit my own horses trot bareback for more than a couple seconds. He's very choppy. What I did was buy a bareback pad and just put a bunch of hours on that thing to help improve my balance :)

    Actually he's wider than the other two. He's not round though. But rounder than they are he has a huge trot. I couldn't even find 'the place'on him. . He has decent withers.
    Ugh I don't know what's goin on. I was all over the place on him.

    Hmm what type of ridding do you do? I tought my QH to do a nice slow jog so I just tug a little and he will jog forever! Maybe do some work in the saddle to get him slower and when he will go slow ride bareback?

    Even going slow his trot is just.. Holy crap .
    His canter is even huge. He's really steady and consistent thank God.
    So me being every where up there he was like nothing was happening.

    Just keep on riding bareback. Start at a walk.. keeping it nice and easy.. then add in more intricate patterns to work on tight turns and then progress up to a trot, then a canter, etc.

    It'll be alright :)
