    How does he react when you go in a two point? The two point will help put your legs in the right position and will help strengthen your legs for the english position

    You should try a dressage exercise my instructor makes us do to keep out legs down and under our hip pocket, while trotting (you might want to start at the walk first) take one foot out of the stirrup and grab your ankle with your hand so that your knee is bent. This helps keep your thigh in the right position. Hope this helps!!

    I would agree with .Delete. Ride bareback more. It helps with building balance.
