Thank you! It helps that his trot is lovely to sit to, hahaha.
But yep, I've always had trouble with posting. It's a bit better than before, but I think I had a breakthrough last time on just that: sinking my heels right in the moment I rise. We'll see if it sticks! But yeah, when I first starting training with my current coach, she suggested sticking with sitting only, since I barely had steering then, and only recently have I finally started to work on me.
The day before yesterday and on the lunge today I got him really active so we'll see how it goes. But I think I really get the feeling now so hopefully by my next vid, you'll see a difference!
My concern in this though: I have a feeling if I take my whip away, he'll quickly start to ignore my leg again. What can I do so that he listens to my leg and not need the whip to sit there to remind him I mean it, even if not being used??
