Riding my appaloosa
 
Hi,

I got my appaloosa horse, Reggie, about 6 months ago, he is a good horse but I have had problems staying on him and staying balanced especially when I am running/loping on him. I ride with a western saddle and when I run with him I always have to take the reins in one hand and hang on to the horn with my other hand and still i feel very unsteady. He seems to be a sort of 'narrow' and thin/bony horse but I do feed him well, I think that might just be the way he is. Does anyone have any tips for me on how to feel more comfortable and steady when loping?

Thanks for any help!
Amy:-)
