What do you think my trainer means when she tells me to open my hips when I'm at the canter? What do I do?

Maybe.. she usually tells me to lift my back up a little more and lower my hands lol which is weird because I guess I'm kind of doing the opposite of what normally happens? But yeah I'll try to lean back more while lifting my hands up slightly and we'll see how that goes tomorrow :) thanks so much for the advice @brenna noble
Oh okay thanks! That makes sense. But my next question is then how would I do that in a half seat?? @adeline Schneider / @brenna noble?
I'd say that's maybe you have to follow your horse's movement with your seat?
Thanks!!
