Re: [RC] keeping one's seat - Alice Yovich

I will try that. I suspect I need the help as much or more than she does. I had forgotten those long ago no stirrup, hunt seat lessons. It might be time to try that again. Thanks for reminding me!

BTW I think you can learn a TON about balance and hands by walking and trotting without stirrups - not just by going bareback. So maybe you can convince your daughter to do that.  I found that from my youth riding bareback, I learned to hold on with my legs - the full length of them. It became my natural reaction to a testy situation. Not a good idea as an adult when the horses you are riding consider that a cue to GO.
