Relax your seat more and it will allow you to move with the horse istead of going against the movement. Instead of just sitting with it try and move with the horse... does that help? I hope I explained it well...If not someone will.

Try pushing the weight into your legs...like, have nice long legs; & sit deeper. ;) Don't lean back, though.

that is odd. What does that have to do with bouncing at the canter?

older people get sore and achey and will tighten their muscles to avoid pain without even knowing it so they can't keep a nice open lower back and they bounce at the canter

Hey, no fair :( I'm over 30 and don't bounce at the canter. I think its very comfy speed to go at. I have a really bad habit of letting go with my legs, just balancing on my seat. I know...its not a good thing, but I have an ample seat to balance on
