Drop your stirrups and move your lower body with horse, don't brace against the movement.

I can post a picture. But it will be on my page! Check it out there. My videos are all too long to post. All at least 15 mins. Long. But I will try to post picture.

No to explain what you mean. As in what all the terms are... I don't fully understand. I know deep seat, and W/T/C but not alot of those terms...

Agreed. You need many sessions of riding at the WALK without stirrups. You need a long leg for many things, including balancing well, and you will wear out your ability to pull your leg forward when you don't have a stirrup to brace against, by riding for an hour or more without the stirrups. I have two 15yo's who ride and help me train. One of them has a chair seat, so she spends the first hour riding my (finished) mare English with the stirrups pulled. She uses a mounting block to get on.
Tip: when you are riding glance down. You should NOT be albe to see your toe. If you can, you have a "chair seat", which describes your current seat. With some work you Can fix that. =D
