I think you might shorten your stirrup one, myabe. You seem a bit canted forward, almost as if you are "hovering" over the saddle a bit, which might make you a bit insecure at the canter because any slowing or dodging he might do, however slight, would make you fall forward as a result of already being just a hair in front of your true vertical balance.
He is off a bit I think he needs his feet done :(.... Thank you for helpin me out :} im trying realy hard to get used to cantering and im just starting to not bounce as much as I did when I first started. At some points because im a stupid head lol I was standing in my stirrups and was trying to let my knees ... bend I guess you would say... so I wouldnt bounce around alot if I start bouncing I start to go into panic mode so idont know if you can see it but I was holdng onto the horn at some points. I have only had one lesson.on cantering and it was only for 5 mins, so I've been tryin to work on what im doing wrong lol its hard when I don't have a coach. I hope eventually I can do things right when riding but I know im slowly making progress. Maybe one day id be good enough to go into a show :/
