Sounds like you are tense and stiff in your hips, pelvic and seat bone's area.
Are you pinching and gripping anywhere from your knee's? You must allow your legs to be long and heels deep - so that they can anchor you, without you gripping and pinching - you must allow your upper bodies weight to flow down through your body into your heels. If you are gripping or pinching somehwere, you block that - which can cause the issue at hand.
Proper leather length is essential, so that you can remain secure and balanced.
I highly recommend Lunge Line Work with NO reins. This will help you emmensly *sp* you will have to force yourself to find your seat and your legs. Then, an educated eye on the ground who is helping you, will beable to see what exactly is going on with your body to cause the issue.
