[quote="Jubilee Rose"]JDI, thanks for the critique. I do think maybe my stirrups are too long. It's weird because on the horse I used to ride I didn't seem to have this "chair seat" problem. quote]

Saddle fit on a different horse can affect this. If you have photos of you on the other horse have a look and see if the saddle looks different. My saddle is hopeless on my older gelding, I can hardly do a rising trot the balance is that bad, but on my 2yo its fine.

She's a cute mover isn't she? I think everyone covered most of your issues but just for kicks, grab a ruler or a piece of paper and hold it up to your picture. From your heel strait up and down. You should line up....Heel to Hip to shoulder and your toe and knee should line up. That might help you with your chair seat. Your toes pointed out.... I did that for years and it was really hard to fix. At one point my old trainer tied my stirrup to the girth with baling twine so that I could feel the pull when I tried to turn my toes out but it just ended up making me angry... It was a good thought though. It took me along time to fix that....
