    Upnover I agree with you. That is how I ride and was taught and that is what I teach my student(s)

    Great answer, upnover, thank you.

    So for you, there's two-point and three-point and half seat is half way between the two?

    I have always gone by this: three-point and half-seat are the same. Leg, leg, crotch. Full seat is leg, leg, seat. Then two-point is the jumping position.

    That's what I was taught too.

    I've only ever been taught 3-point and a 2-point, but to ride with a lighter seat which I guess would be a half seat? 3-point being butt in the saddle and 2-point being butt out of saddle. When I ride light out of the saddle, I sometimes get a butt rub with the saddle and have maybe a slight bit of contact with the pommel....
