Easy.. make a concious effort to post smaller. Your post should be more of a forward and back, not an up and down.

Are you pushing off the stirrups? One should only post as high as the horses impulsion "throws" you in the air. Any higher and you're doing it wrong. :)

Just let it come natural. But when you do go forward, go forward about halfway to help you get a little lower. Your hips shouldn't pass over your knees.

Kind of.
You post with the outside leg as it goes forward, then sit back when his hoof hits the ground and moves back.
So when you go forward, kind of stand up in your stirrups then sit back down. Then just repeat. You just stand up - going forward not up - to where your hips are level with your knees would be the farthest you would want to go.

Correct me if I am wrong - that is the way I was taught.

You never answered my question, do you feel like you are 'pushing' off the stirrups when posting?
