No,we don't have any rocking going on. The saddle fitter had me do this test too last week once further there is no movement. He is actually very sensitive to super tight girthing so we use a no slip cover on his birth and no slip liner under his saddle so that is doesn't have to be super super tight on him and even with the only moderately tight forth there is no rocking.
As for feeling like I am leaning back, I feel like I couldn't even if I tried. I can't even sit properly in it as it alelways just throws me forward with his movement. At the end of a ride my tailbone ACHES really really bad for a few hours. I never thought anything of it before because when I first started riding Cinny we got a stirrup caught on a gate and he spooked really bad from it. I came off but my foot stuck in my stirrup so I was suspended for a second until my leather slid off the bar on the saddle...which was in the down position and then dropped onto my tailbone fracturing it. I thought all the pain was from this injury and that I would just always have it until I started riding bareback and lesson horses with lesson saddles.
