    Maybe the stirrups are too short, too. Could you get some video from your lesson and post it? That would be really good for a critique, and you will treasure this video a year from now, as it will show how much you've improved!

    Unless you are using the rise to either slow the horse or to length or shorten it's stride. If you rise bigger then it will encourage a longer stride when combined with a stable seat and core muscles. Nothing wrong with a full rise as long as it is in time with the horse and in accordance with what you want to do.

    Really I wouldn't worry about it my dressage instructor make me rise the full distance, so there are different views, if you feel that you rise too high then drop your stirrups a hole or two.

    What type of riding are you doing in the discipline of english? Show jumping, hunters, or dressage?

    You need shorter stirrups for the first time sub-categories and longer ones for dressage.

    To me it sounds like you are using your feet to rise instead of the horse's motion and your core.

    Posting is a diagonal hip movement when you rise your seat bones come from the center of the saddle and travel diagonally upward till they are just over the pommel of your saddle (or just behind your hands)
