The problem is that I used to have a very good and extremly independant seat, I rode medium dressage tests and I sat big warmblood trots with no stirrups or reins, I was very very secure and had a superglue seat.
For the last 3 years I have ridden nothing but young horses and normaly a young problem horse at that, I seem to have lost my core balance, picked up a ton of bad habits and am unable to sit a nice pony trot without reaching for the reins.
I don't care about looking pretty on a horse, If the seat is effective, independant and correct then it will be pretty by default.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
