The one thing that stuck out to me is you have a really loose leg. It's flopping and bouncing around. Don't worry, I had the same problem! Really ride off your leg and support yourself with your heel. Wanna know how to fix it? STIRRUPLESS!! Drop your stirrups and post the trot, sit the trot, and halfseat! Your reins are also very long, but with certain horses, they would take advantage. Keep contact with your horse. At the canter, you seem to pump with your arms. To help with that, lean forward and just follow the horse. Don't let leaning become a habit, however. When the horse spooked, you did REALLY well. You stayed on, and I really liked how you got her back to look at it. Kudos to you! The last thing I'd like to mention is you need to turn up your hands. Pretend your holding two ice cream cones. Good job!
I love my dirty, sweaty horse more then any boy!
He may knock a pole but he'll never break my heart.
