Technically, yes a 2 point seat is where 2 points of your body while seated on the horse line up. However, if you raise your butt off the saddle & lean forward this is where the exercise will begin w/o raising ur irons. Believe me, you couldn't ride like this all day, I have uber strong legs, I kickbox & do plyometrics (jump squats, scissor kicks, 180's etc), and I can only do about 10 to 15 minutes of this exercise because you are working the largest muscles in your body, your legs. If you are balanced and this forces your legs in the correct position you can ride raised out of the saddle and still have calf pressure on your horse's sides and ride properly. When my instructor first introduced this exercise, I thought I was gonna die, I was sweating! However since doing this for a year now, I find it a good check point for leg position and quite enjoy it.
