    No, it was just that his transition from a trot to a canter is a super long stride, and it popped me up more than I was expecting. 3 people were watching and if he *DID* buck, they would have said something. I am certain it's not that.

    Work on your sitting trot, get some lessons and stick at it. Also try having a look at your saddle, different saddles give you more or less support and also the shape of your saddle can make a difference things like the position and shape of the knee roll, a professional saddler should be able to advise you on this.
    This video also may help,

    It takes a long time to get your seat. You never forget it. I can easily say that you have not yet developed your seat, so keep working at the trot. =D
    I often don't ride for months at a time and I maintain my seat.

    I would work on basics and work with a trainer. I hear all sorts of problems here, and I don't think that cantering is something you should be going if you can't hold your position yet.
    What I would recommend is non stirup work on the lunge line with no reins. A trainer can help you with that, so you can build your seat and learn how to sit the trot and really feel your horse. It sounds to me like right now you are trying to do to much without having the basics down.
