She has me do exercises where for example (with stirrups) I'll sit two, rise three. Or sit three rise two. Things like that which tend to help me relax my joints more. (I used to grip with my thigh a lot and I'm working on relaxing that). So I'lll add them in.

I think I understand what you're saying about finding your distances. I'll give it a go. Poncho (the pony Im riding) jumps directly from the base of the jump regardless which is something I'm used to so he'd actually probably be a good horse for me to practice on (so I don't start anticipating). Thanks!
Sitting the trot stirrup-less is easier than sitting with stirrups. That doesn't help. That's why I said sit trot with, post without. :)

I hope my explanation made sense... it really is something you have to practice. Explaining is hard, for me. Lol

Good luck!

Oh and another thing you can do to help you release better. First off, I like what MyBoyPuck said for that horse. That will strengthen your two point also. Don't be afraid to reack up and grab some mane to help you balance. Better to do that than balance on the horses mouth.

Oh sorry. I do do sitting trots with stirrups as well, but not as often as she has me do those wonky exercises.

Your advice does make sense =)
I normally do grab mane further up on the neck both to get out of his mouth as well as for getting me used to where I should be. I was having special difficulty riding him as like I said I'm used to horses being forward rather than asleep Which, in it's own way is great because I can ride him more and learn to get stable on that type of horse as well!

No need to apologize... I didn't mean to come off rude like it may read. :)
I was just saying that sitting without stirrups is easy... its posting without them that works you out!
It will definitely help to ride him, as well as other different horses. :)
