In this Outdoor Recreation video tutorial you will learn how to ride a horse with some basic instructions. This video is from Livestrong. The first lesson is how to create a correct back position that enhances our ability to stay balanced in a saddle. You should create a straight line from ear to shoulder to hip to heel stay right in that position. If the leg moves too far forward, you will feel you are falling back from the saddle. There should be another simple line. From the elbow to the horse's mouth one straight line puts the horse in a correct position for good communication. Watch the video for the demonstration of the two basic straight lines while riding.
