agreed...and not an excuse but we had just picked up the canter in that corner because there was a large rather wet spot on that end of the arena! But I do have a habit of sometimes leaning to the inside around corners too!!

What my coach did with me is made me ride 20m circles and make sure I kept my body straight and up by looking over my outside shoulder all the way. This makes your shoulders and torso turn so you are feeling what putting more weight on your outside is. Now being straight isn't that much of an issue. If I can turn my head and not feel my body do much moving, it usually means I'm centered in the saddle. It really helped with my dressage too ;) I wish I had the video from Greenwood on my camera, I didn't support thorugh the turn, he fell on the forehand and WHAMO, refusal.

To me your hip is still too far back. But I'm no expert!
