I find that riding bends and turns easier than riding straight lines so until you feel more secure keep your horse on the bend with short parts on the straight line.

I found this does two things. It gets YOUR seat more worked into position and the horse has to use its hind end more so strength and activity is enhanced.

I have the same problem in Dressage.. I can't sit when I have my stirrups on. So I take them off and, the verdict to that would be good dressage for me =D I make him do leg yields easily when I don't have stirrups :) and I also do better at keeping him Round and Bending.. So he gets all fancy-pancy :)
Hope that kinda helped..
