    Thanks for all the advice guys :) I guess I was putting too much pressure on myself. But today I had the best lesson ever. I did all the drills and posted trot on the lunge without her going off the rail at all. I think practicing my form helped make her listen to my leg commands.
    And I did so well on the lunge, my instructor had me try posting trot around the arena. So, I guess it was just a temporary loss of confidence. He also thinks I should try cantering by September so I must be doing all right.
    Thanks dudes!

    Relax and just try to enjoy yourself. 7 lessons is what...maybe 7 hours of riding? Give yourself a break!

    Take your time, be patient, do things the right way. I have a natural seat (whatever that means) and can stay on just about anything and just melt into the saddle. I have no idea why.

    I however, SUCK at reigning and bit work. So read that as "I can stay on anything but can't get it to do what I want" LOL. I'm working on that now, back as a young rider as long as my horse followed his head I was happy. Now I want to learn to communicate with my horse while riding and I have a lot of bad habits to undo.

    Probably would have been smarter to stick with my lessons early on and learn it all the right way and slowly ;) Sounds like you're doing fine!
