Hunter to Eq Transition

Hi! So I currently ride and show hunters, but when I go to college and join the college competition scene its with the IHSA and it is Equitation. I used to ride Eq, but now somehow I am having trouble getting back into it, especially the canter seat. My hunter trainer has been trying to help me transition, and I know its not THAT different, but I know there are subtle differences that will help me ride better as an Eq rider.

Any tips, especially on the canter seat? Thanks!

When I do schooling shows, I do both Hunter o/f and Eq, and the only difference that I do between the two is make sure we are long and low with a more forward seat for HOF, and then a more collected, deeper seat for Eq. It seems to be working cause I always medal in Eq....
