I'll take Reiner Klimke as an example of how to ride a sitting trot.

FF to 8:33 to see how it's really done.

Klimke and Ahlerich - 1984 Olympics Dressage - YouTube
I can't find one at the moment but I was told to try and find Beezie Madden before one of her rounds at the sitting trot. But that is what my sitting trot is supposed to be like. Or, the the other girls in the videos just without how their legs and feet are.

Again, dressage, not hunter/jumpers.

Oy vey, appearances over correct technique.

Not a barn I would waste my money on.

Nope. Correct vs incorrect. The discipline doesn't matter.

My stirrups aren't supposed to be that long, and my heels are not supposed to be like that, always down.

You are still focusing on appearances rather than on the physical actions you need to take to sit the trot correctly.

Do as you wish.

But if I have long stirrup just so I can get the sitting trot before a JUMPING round, I will be reaching for my stirrups while trying to jump, and that would end up bad. And I sat the trot correctly with my heels coming up and my leg moving around this morning, because I did what my barn owner told me too.

Why? I have no problem sitting the trot. Plus dressage riders ride differently then hunter riders. You'll lose in a show if your stirrups are real long and your legs are constantly banging the horse's sides. Sure dressage riders can sit well, so can other disciplines...like Western Pleasure riders for example, but are you going to tell the OP to ride hunters as a western rider? Probably not.

Riding in a dressage saddle, the dressage way, is not going to help the OP sit the trot for hunters. She is specifically asking about her discipline. NOT dressage. So she needs to keep her heels down, legs secure, relaxed hips, and then she'll be sitting the trot like a hunter.

Sitting quietly at the trot is difficult..practice will for sure help.

Good luck.
