What an unbalanced rider does to your horse
 
I found this and thought it was pretty educational on how important it is to be balanced when riding!

I agree. It is a lot more work and worry for a horse to deal with a rider who is not well balanced. The trick seems to be knowing that we are out of balance and how to correct it.

Haha, now I am paranoid that I am riding unbalanced unintentionally. Thanks for sharing though.

There are some things that might clue you in to a problem. Does one stirrup always seem shorter than the other? Does your saddle always seem to list to the same side? Is the wear uneven on your riding pants, saddle or boots? Does your horse circle well to one direction but not the other?
