It could be a little of both. Regular hunter classes (around here) we don't ever really sit in the saddle except for the contact when posting or when at a walk. When cantering, you are out of the saddle with just a brushing contact. Hunter Eq classes you are a bit more in the saddle but not much. So it is possible that while working on your seat this summer you have gotten into a more dressage-like seat. But it is also possible that this coach likes a different style of riding then your other coach, especially if you are slightly outside the area where you previously were.
