I agree. You may be clamping with your legs. If you had a video, perhaps I could say for sure if this is the problem.
Remember to relax your legs at the horses sides, and sink into your heels (rather than heels down). Grip (not clamping) should be light through the thigh and calf, and avoid pinching with your knees and heels. If you have access, lunge lessons can really help. If you don't already have a trainer, try taking a couple of lessons, you can learn a huge amount about your riding, it's faults, and it's good points just by hearing somebody's opinion! ~
