Ok, so when I canter I have a lot of trouble with slipping/losing my stirrups, and I believe that it is caused by me gripping with my knees. So suggestions to stop griiping with my knees and sink my weight all the way down in my heels?
Also, I lean to far back when trying follow the movement of the canter?
And last, when my lesson horse breaks into a trot it is a super fast trot and I feel like I am bouncing all over the saddle and feel a little out of control and actually have to halt in the middle of the arena to get my seat and my breath back, that is really frustrating (and embarrassing) so help with those things?
Thanks in advance!
