Saddle seat is an English thing, but that's not what I do. When I first started riding a long, long time ago, the lessons I took had me do that. You don't really move with the horse in saddle seat, you keep a stiff position and keep your hands very high up when holding the reins, and therefore making it uncomfortable for the horse. I'm not sure if there is a name for what I do now, but we move with the horse, and I personally believe it's much better than saddle seat.
