Shoulders back. Almost feel like you are leaning back a little and sit deep into the saddle and over time you’ll get it! Hope this helps! 😊
really squeeze with you calves and put all of your weight on your butt as you push it into the saddle. Think that you are pushing your back pockets into the saddle. Put your shoulders back, and chin up. That will help you naturally sit the canter. At first, only do it at the straight sides of the ring, and then slowly build up to build strength in your seat.
