I am an over weight rider. I am working on that part of it but I'm sure this is the reason for my balance problem. I'm not horrible at it but do you have some tips on staying in the saddle.
I went riding the other day and my horse got spooked at a tarp they had out for an ACTHA ride coming up and I about made a nasty fall. I had a hard time getting my self up right from the sudden turn and run that I wasn't expecting. If I had fallen I would have fell down a 50 ft hill and into a lake.
I went right back to the barn and told the trainer to start him in his program. He starts today and I am not riding for 3 weeks and then I have to go out on rides with the trainer on his horse while he is on mister
Now I know he will help me a lot and like I said I'm sure weight is an issue but is there anything you guys can suggest. I had a friend say to get some chinks. She said those help a lot.( I hate the way they look). But I will do or buy what ever. My horse is being fixed now I need fixing. I'm not confident in my riding at all
