Good points everyone. I go back to my trainer and take lessons now and then
to make sure I am sitting correctly and don't take offense if other riders
offer me suggestions. And when I went horse shopping, I found one with a
short, strong back. He is all leg and is strong. It took me awhile to get
used to his stride because my other horse has such a long back. But now I
love Star's quick responsiveness.
I've found that riding bareback now and then really reminds you how to sit
the horse! If you do it wrong, you fall off!
