Help with galloping-not my horse, me
Sometimes, when my horse and I gallop, I feel like we are just one. I just feel like I am moving with him. Some days though, like today, I felt like a bouncy ball, about to bounce out of the saddle at anytime. I was riding at my own barn so everything was the same as it normally is. I know it's impossible to say exactly what I was doing wrong without pics or video, but I was hoping you could give me ideas that I can try. So basically, what I'm asking is, what makes a person bouncy at the gallop? Today we had a very nice little trail ride (the first in 3 weeks due to horrible weather), so I was really encouraging him to move. I had to keep slowing him down though, because I was bouncing so much. So what makes a person bouncy during galloping?
