    Thank you all for the suggestions. I did much better in my lesson yesterday, and I was able to control her speed much better than usual, even though she was being extremely fast and crazy. :P

    I won't go into detail on the galloping thing. Everything already covered it.

    I'm guessing she tries to run out the same way each time? Usually horse's take advantage of your weak side. A great way to strengthen it is to drop the stirrup on just your weak side and trot around both posting and in half seat. It will burn like hell, but it will make you very strong.

    I'll definitely try that. Thinking about it, she does tend to duck out to the right more often than the left. Thanks. :]
