What are some things you can do at home to improve your riding ability?
Bareback really improves your balance and seat. Since you dont have the support of the saddle you have to depend on your body for your own support. It really improves your seat! However I would suggest not going full bareback as that can be bad for the horses back. I would suggest using a bareback pad😊
Work out - core exercise have shown to help improve balance in the saddle and seat aids. Use exercise balls and a wobble board to help with balance, and stretch out properly after riding or working out, it'll help keep your body even so you will be even in the saddle when you ride
