You are blessed! One (one!!) of my greatest challenges is "turning off and tuning in" to the feel of the horse beneath me...I would give anything to be able to truly just feel what she is doing at all times (which part off her is where, and at what time, etc...) as we are working, but it seems the harder I concentrate, the harder it is!
I can usually tell which diagonal I'm on by being obviously off balance right away if I'm posting at the wrong time....that DOES have to do with feel so maybe I am starting to "get" some feel.
OP, I would bet improving your immediate "feel" of what your horse is doing beneath you would help a ton with picking up the correct diagonal!
You are very likely a more advanced rider than I, but, I figured my two cents couldn't hurt! ; 0)
