    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for all your help, I've taken up Pilates to try and improve my core, I like the idea with the saddle, thanks Tnavas.

    I have my lesson on Friday so i'll talk to my instructor and ask about a few lessons on the lunge.

    Thanks again

    One bit of advice I can give is to have yourself filmed while riding. When I went back to basics a few years ago , to improve my seat and riding my friend used to film my lessons for me and I used to watch them back. Sometimes you feel like a sack of spuds and when you look back at it your actually fine.

    I second this - when I was a teenager my dad used to film me riding and very often I'd finish the lesson and think "that was awful". He'd insist it wasn't and I wouldn't believe him until I saw the video of myself. It's also really useful to see where you can improve, and hopefully gain a more secure-feeling seat. For example, I found that my lower legs would often swing in canter, which led to me feeling "like a sack of spuds"! My instructors would mention this but it wasn't until I was able to see it for myself that I was really able to improve it.
