Your horses trot is bouncy because he's not "round" or engaging his back. This is typical in green horses because you have to teach a horse to be round. When this happens the horses back is hollow and will get a sore back with a rider bouncing around and may cause sway back in an older horse. Also when you teach a horse to become round his trot and canter will become slower and smoother.
For a trail horse that is only ridden a couple times a week it's not really a big deal, most trail horses aren't taught this because they don't undergo alot of physical stress. Just thought you should be informed :)
Buck and I will continue to produce sweaty saddle pads and work on circles and lines. Maybe when we have more expirence riding together we'll try to figure out that back rounding thing.
I can't quote two posts on my phone, but ThirteenAcres I live in Sabine Parish. I work at the only animal shelter within an hour or so in any direction, and although our main focus is cars and dogs we have gotten a LOT of horses due to the drought. I will have to post some before/after pictures of Buck and the other horses who have come through our facility! We have gotten some wonderful horses and seen some amazing transformations!
