I am a noob when it comes to horses. the only riding experience I get is from a horse camp. I'm to broke to afford a horse or horse lessons. so when your galloping is there something you need to do with your butt? Question

This is probably something you should ask the people at horse camp, if that's where you ride Smile

A typical horse has four distinct gaits: walk, trot, canter, and gallop. ("Gaited" horses also have extra gaits, such as the running walk, the corto, the tolt, and so on.) If you look under "Articles" on the sidebar to the left, under "Riding" you will find articles on riding the trot and the canter.

A gallop is much different, and you should be very comfortable at walk, trot, and canter before you attempt gallop. It's much faster, and the horse really shifts up a gear to go into gallop. You have to be able to hold yourself balanced over *his* center of balance, without slapping your bottom on his back or dragging on his back. It's a little similar to riding the canter...but not much Smile
