Op, I appologize if that is not what you are asking. As for help from me, sorry, haha but I am not much of a speed demon! Maybe head to the barrel racing section as I am sure they have some pointers on how to stay seated going that fast.
I've ridden in a drill team in my earlier days, so yes, I understand what they are. But you have to be PRECISE, not just fast.
Anyway, I did sort of misunderstand the post, and I just realized she needed help on her seat more than anything.
However, I still think slowing down and getting better at slower gaits would be better... going back to the basics in her riding. I agree with the above poster :)
