    I have to agree on no stirrups. Best thing for yah. Work on sitting trot (Have a coach or someone who knows what they're doing with you), after a while and once your comfortable with that work on rising no stirrups. It'll help your balance and help develop the muscles in your legs a TON. Gradually work your way up to canter no stirrups, but keep in mind that is after a lot of work, and a lot of time practiced. I use no stirrups to help my balance and muscles all the time. It's a great help. Exercises will also help. There's ones you can even practice on your horse provided it's a calm horse. Try touching up to the ears, then all the way back to the tail. Try and touch your toes with the same hand and switch (What you do with one side so with the other). There's a few more arm exercises and some leg exercises that could help a lot with balance. Hope this helps a bit~! :3
