Do you have advice to don't disturb your pony when changing diagonal in trot? My pony looses the nice trot and gets tense and throws her head.

Change up the spots in the ring that you change your diagonal so that she doesnt get used to it. I have found that horses tend to get tense and anticipate when the rider becomes repetitive
You could go up for two beats instead of sitting for two beats. Hopefully not getting on her back might help you.
