Getting back in the saddle

At my barn there is a girl, just out of high school, who used to ride like two years ago and is having a hard time getting back into it. She is getting lessons but still finding herself shaky at the trot and canter, her balance isn't that great and her hand position could use work. Any ideas for fun (or not) exercises and stuff for her to work on these things?

Thanks in advance

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it is the risk, the gamble. In any event it is a thing I need.

To ride a horse, is to ride the sky

I would suggest some nice relaxed rides out on the trail. Just more time in the saddle is the best way to get more comfortable.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I suggest the trainer getting her on a lunge line and her tying up her reins and balencing arms up to the side until she feels good in each gait.
