Im am currently an english rider but am starting trail riding. I have found that I can't control my horse very well in the western saddle. In an english saddle he responds VERY well, but not so much in western. It takes a lot to get him to stop and he wont listen to my legs very well...i would prefer not to change bits but is there any way to just get him to listen better? (im sure its a matter of rider errors not horse lol!)
***Whenever I ride western I find that my foot keeps slipping out of the stirrup, and I can't feel the rhythm very well at the trot! I bounce all over the place and it drives me nuts! Please help! Thanks in advance!
