Super rough trot..
My paint horse stallion has a really, really rough trot. I've been riding horses for about 14 years now, (I'm 18). I've never ridden a horse with this bad of a trot. I seriously can't sit it. I've tried everyday for a week, atleast 4 hours a day. I've slowed his trot & kept his head down, a little better then but still rough. I'm not sure if using a tie down to keep his head a little lower would help or what. He goes from that horrible trot to a nice, nice canter! He's Western, used for roping, reining, herding, barrel racing, western pleasure, trails, mounted shooting, etc. I love him to death but I DESPISE his trot, he makes me feel like a horrible rider. Any help on how to maybe sit it out, or anything, would be appreciated. (:
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high, keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky, & live like you aint afraid to die, & don't be scared, just enjoy your ride.
