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!
