My instructor always tells me to relax. When you tense, it is harder to balance at sitting trot. Also, she said to think of moving side to side instead of forward and back. Of course, you don't actually really do that, but the thought helps me get better balance, and my horse can be very bouncy.

I don't know if you knew Abbey, the paint? But she died today. =( She got colic and they couldn't do anything for her.
