For a smooth ride, both horse and the rider need to strike the right balance. It is important for a rider to follow a horse’s motion and stay in balance, if not you will end up gripping the horse with your thighs, clinging on to him by holding their calves etc. if this creates some unbalance in the horse’s motions, his ability to turn would get affected. If you want to understand how a rider’s balance affects a horse’s movement then read through. - An off-balance rider typically falls behind the motion of the horse. - Leaning to far forward is another mistake that riders make. - Leaning more towards one side also affects the balance. - Shifting the weight onto the wrong seat bone is another mistake that should be avoided. If a rider goes off balance, the horse feels uncomfortable and is bound to react but this reaction differs from horse to horse. Some horses might speed up and move forward faster and faster, some might slow down and even stop running, some might turn more or less than the rider’s expectations and some might turn in completely different direction than what the rider intended. In the above mentioned scenarios, if anybody has to be blamed then it is the rider and not the horse. the horse’s reaction gives you signs of the rider’s balance issue. If you are facing similar problems with your horse, check out your own balance and the position of your body position before blaming the horse.
