My horse just turned 8 this January and has been broke since age three. :) I paid extra attention to my lets and my legs and bum were tight as a drum constantly bracing and my bracing was making him brace and so his back was tight and beat irregular. I loosened up, having convinced myself that doing this would prevent me from falling and it worked quite well. I also noticed I don't have as much thigh muscle as I would like to have for grippage so I started squats today with weights to help me out. When the weather gets nice, hello bicycle! :)
Any other tips?
