One Exercise to Improve Your Sitting Trot

The sitting trot is a difficult gait for many to learn. It is not a gait you can muscle through, in fact the more you try to hold yourself in the saddle by gripping tighter the more you will end up bouncing.

The more you bounce on the horse’s back the more they will tighten their back for protection, in effect shortening their stride and making the gait even more difficult and uncomfortable to ride.

To ride the sitting trot well requires a few key skills of alignment and movement. In this video I’ll show you what those skills are, and more importantly, a simple exercise for practicing this gait that will help you learn without the bouncing.
