You're not going to like this but here goes.
Please pay for some riding lessons, even if it's one every two weeks or so.
Your horse is on the forehand (unbalanced), you are unbalanced (balanced riders don't need to hold on to the pommel during canters or down transitions), your cues are rough (slamming your heels into his flanks is not a good canter cue), and on and on and on.
And please don't try to gallop yet. You're just asking for a nasty fall then.
