A good way to try too is to post bareback, this will force you to relax in order to stay on bc you can't post correctly and stay on if you're tense

I was trained to ride primarily bareback. Its all about those abs! It helps to relax your butt. As my trainer says: "Tight balls bounce, flat ones... Well they don't go anywhere."

Just like in a saddle, pushing your heels down helps.

I sit the trot though, I have come to find it more comfortable.

Thanks for the tips. I don't think I'm nervous while I ride and I make sure I stay relaxed I normally start to tense once I've started to slip even though that's not a good thing. I concentrate a lot on my position while I'm riding. I have been practising a bit over the past few days and my legs hurt a lot but oh well and I think I have imrpoved quite a bit.
