Do you have any tips for sitting the canter?

Do you have any tips for sitting the canter?
I got the nickname "chicken wings" at my Pony Club beacsue I used to flap my elbows about in canter to keep in the seat. Since doing bareback, I have stopped that - thank god - and my riding has improved a lot
Focus on your seat, really use it entirely, don't grip with your knees, let your leg fall naturally, don't look at the ground, you can work without stirrups...
Hope it helps!
