just a thought?

I was a hunt rider for about a million years before I switched to western. At the jog I can sit really strait and have no issues. At the lope I immediately roll forward into that hunt position. I was thinking maybe I could tape or tie some yarn to the back of my saddle and the attache it to my collor, or my back so that it would pull against me the moment I rolled forward... to remind me to sit back.... Do you think it would work?????

I don't see why not. Maby just a piece of yarn and a safty pin. That way if you get...God forbid....in trouble, the yarn would be sure to snap break. Yet its strong enough to tug at your collar. The tricky part would be getting the yarn on.
I would tie it to the saddle first. You could maybe do it like you are putting a ponytail in your hair...like reaching your arms up over your head and lean back a tad and attach it to a t-shirt collar. Make sence?

Tie it around my neck maybe? KIDDING...

Actually, that's not a bad idea... attache it to the saddle and then end it with a rubberband, I can even put it in my pony tail... it should break if I come off right? Just yarn...

Attach it to your clothing, not to yourself! Instead of using a safety pin, which might tear your clothes, try a paper-clip or a clothes peg.

Attack bit of string or elastic or thread to saddle. Mount. Reach around for the string, clip it onto your collar. Boom, easy :)
