Well first of all you need to come talk to my bf and convince him to even sit in my dressage saddle, getting him to ride in it would be a huge plus.

I am really kicking myself lately for not really working on my seat and leg position when I had lessons. I had a good instructor but I hated dressage at the time so never really focused on it. I really regret that now as I was paying paying pennies for lessons then. My leg/hip is my weakest point.

Lots of stretches, yoga would be very good.

I'd want to have lunge lessons with a well trained but quiet horse, with a trainer that actually corrected me. In the first 5 years that I was riding I would ride with my toes waywayway out and I was never once corrected for it. Once I started trying to change that it was hard on my knees (despite trying to rate my thigh inwards not my feet) and I still need to really, really concentrate on keeping my feet facing foreward at all times. If I could have just been corrected on that in the first few years everything would be much easier. :)
