I can, but it's not easy. And funnily enough, when I was doing no stirrup work all the time, I couldn't do it. Now that I rarely do no stirrup work, I can when my trainer asks. But then again, my trainer seems to think that taking stirrups away from me is cheating because my position improves and becomes steadier without stirrups. But, I have to say that my trainer can be sadistic with the no stirrups and two-point. She once had a group lesson where she had us doing a competition to see who could go the longest - the ones that quit first had to put up the other people's horses after the lesson. Let's just say you never say a more determined group of riders to keep going. :) She eventually quit after a couple of us just kept going and going.
