I have recently acquired trainer tomorrow is my first lesson with her but we sat and had a chat about my concerns it yesterday she's watched me ride a few times. She's thinks I need to establish a stable leg for cantering she said she's also going to teach me to ask for bend using my seat and hands which will help me I think

So I had my first lesson on Lynn today and I think it went well. My trainer said that my leg comes back to far when applying a leg aid in canter causing my heel to creep up.

My trainer had me cantering lots of 20m circles and figures of eight but instead on concentrating how I apply leg aids concentrating on getting Lynn to really stretch out her head and back when doing this my leg did improve.

Great news, it'll get easier and easier (as well as cleaner) over time. Glad you found a decent trainer :)
