    I agree :)

    Also, how old is your girl? If she is still a bit green, her trot may just be hard to sit right now...I remember when I was first working with my guy..his trot was so disjointed, choppy....horrid! I used to go walk or canter bareback, but not trot on him because it was so bad! As they get more experienced and begin to get a feel for their body and how to be balanced and have improves a lot. :)

    My horse just turned 8 this January and has been broke since age three. :) I paid extra attention to my lets and my legs and bum were tight as a drum constantly bracing and my bracing was making him brace and so his back was tight and beat irregular. I loosened up, having convinced myself that doing this would prevent me from falling and it worked quite well. I also noticed I don't have as much thigh muscle as I would like to have for grippage so I started squats today with weights to help me out. When the weather gets nice, hello bicycle! :)

    Any other tips?

    Sorry, I don't know why I was thinking mare and younger....oh well, I am a space case sometimes :) Sounds like you have made some headway.

    Hehe I do that all the time. :) I used to think that once a stallion was gelded he became a she xD I didn't even notice until you said that.

    Hm...I honestly don't grip a lot with my legs when I'm riding bareback. I don't use any more leg muscle than I do in the saddle.
