Balance Seat/Farah DeJohnette Horsemanship
What is a balance seat? A balance seat is a way of sitting on the horse that allows the horse and rider to be synchronized. It allows the horse to travel forward in a comfortable and balanced way. If you could imagine sitting on your horse your seat bones would be evenly balanced with your weight. Your center of balance or gravity would be over the stirrup. In short, you are balancing yourself through your hip and are in complete harmony with the horse.
