Ride with a neck strap and practice with walk and trot
I've heared form some people say put your toes down and heels up, this apparently centers your body on the horses back and absorbs the movement espicially in trot. This is what alycia burton says to do. Maybe try that?
Ride with no stirrups in the saddle
Hold onto a neck strap
While riding with a saddle do no stirrups and no hands at the walk trot and canter then work your way to riding bareback
Ride no stirrups
Sink all your weigh into your butt. Sit like you are sitting on the couch and let your legs hang. Just have to find your center with the horse as one.
practice practice practice.. and when you ride with a saddle ride with no stirrups
I just sit a little farther back. If you just start at a walk and build from there! Also you can grab mane :)
