Anything would be great.
try just walking around the arena...say "left" when the left foot hits the ground, and "right" when the right foot hits the ground. Do that and then stop for 10-20 seconds. Then...without looking down start it up again. Have a friend or trainer say if you got it correct. Continue with that until you can get it right all the time.
And now do the same thing in a trot (don't post...just sit trot). And repeat the steps above.
When you are ready raise up when the outside leg extends and sit when that leg touches the ground. If you pick up the wrong diagnol...sit for TWO bumps and then raise up and continue. Always have someone there so they can say if you'd got it correct.
Hope that helped a little bit
