    Help with leaning!

    Ok I'm so frustrated with myself right now.

    Well, I got my horse to pick up the right lead FINALLY, and she decides to buck and take off so I'm like ok then, and circle her so she can't. But the thing is I couldn't stop leaning to the outside and I kept putting leg on her accidentally. It was just a train wreck. By the end of the ride, I was frustrated at myself because I just couldn't do it. I tried leaning to the outside, but that's easier said than done.

    Also, the stirrups that I'm using are offset, and I hate them! But when I her to the barn for lessons, my instructor (or trainer, whatever you want to call her) says they help keep my feet in the correct position, since I usually put my foot in the stirrup crooked. But I still hate them.

    I need tips! Will bareback riding help? I can walk and do a slow trot but only when she's quiet and behaving. She's a really narrow horse, so she's hard to hold onto. I've been doing some bareback riding, and I have to say that I'm not good at it. :P

    ETA: Forgot to add that my girth is tight!
