I'll see if someone will take photos soon. I'm usually on my own while my parents babysit (horse lives at their place), but I'll try to get some pics.
Trainer was for my horse to get him going under saddle. He did what I asked and then gave me some complimentary lessons to make sure that horse and I were doing well together. I'm not getting any kind of regular coaching from him. But yes, it does seem like he was encouraging a chair position.
I'm just stopping in briefly on my way up to the barn. Will read posts thoroughly and update later. I appreciate the help
