You have gotten some good advice about you. Now for you riding, when you say you are bracing on the stirrups, are you saying your legs are to far forward and pushing hard on the stirrups? If so a few ideas, drop your stirrups walk first then trot I would sugjest cantering or loping without stirrups for someone I have never seen ride. But walk and trotting should be fine. If you are pushing your feet out infront of you posting would be really really good for you (much more the cantering) its almost impossible to post and keep you feet out infront of you. But, If you are having possition problems speeding up is not going to help. You have to have a good seat and good possition before you start speeding things up.
But don't give up, and stop compareing yourself to others. Its funny when we compare ourselves to others its always up, I don't know many people that always compare themselves to people that are worse then themselves at something.
