Sit back o. The fleshy bit of your bum and squeeze
Try bareback then no stirrups and make sure your heels are down when using four stirrups X
Thanks so much!

My horse has a ton of suspension, he's very animated and bouncy . To adjust to this I did tons of no stirrup work as well as forcing myself to only ride in my full seat. Not only did I get stronger, but it got more and more comfortable for us both❤️
Really make sure to relax on your horse, sink your weight down, and move with the motion of them
Loosen in your hips so that you move more with the horse
Sit deep in your saddle and pretend that your bottom is glued to the saddle
