My best riding hack for green riders in slippery saddles

Adding a bit of grip to your saddle can make it way easier for beginners to learn to balance form their core instead of relying on the reins and stirrups. By using resistance bands to give the seat grip you can take them on and off as needed for different riders or different exercises/events (hello canter first time canter riders). 

You can pick up light super grippy resistance bands here. I’ve found Gaiam brand to have the right combo of grip with give to get he job done without causing any damage to the saddle or being to firm on the channel for the horses spine.
