I personally struggle with sitting trot I just can’t seem to stay comfortable, do you have any suggestions?

Sit as tall as you can but as relaxed as you can. Move with the horse - try not to tense up. Long stirrups or stirrupless is ideal for mastering the sitting trot :)
Moi non plus au début je n'arrivais pas à rester à l'aise dans ma selle quand je faisais du trot assis, puis j'ai commencé à faire du trot sans étriers. J'ai donc appris à laisser descendre mes jambes et à aller dans le mouvement du cheval avec mon bassin. Depuis plusieurs exercices de ce genre, je fais du trot assis sans problème.
I have found no stirrup work to be a tremendous help and also find working on the lung works really well with that too
You will feel your hips rocking backwards and forward. Relax into the movement and follow the horse
Thank you so much 🤗👍😆
Just let your body relax and keep your legs long 😉 without these two things I would not be able to do it
