Have your trainer lunge you. That way she has control of your horse while you work on your balance and she can give you instruction also. Start out at a walk and just gradually work your way up to a trot and canter when you feel comfortable. I'm sure that she can give more suggestions also.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...
