Kitten, you can establish balance by sitting your horse properly and being careful of your weight/leg position. Many riders call it "sitting quietly". A lot of movement from you and your horse continually needs to adjust to compensate.
As for your horse wanting to canter up hill, it's normal. Horses find it easier to canter rather then walk or trot up hill.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
