I think you're taking her post entirely wrong. She's saying that to critique you right now, when both you and your horse have been out of work is not a good example of your riding. Of course when you've been off there will be things that need to be fixed. "Stiff and posed" means that you need to loosen up and actually ride. No one's saying ti as an insult, but as an observation. Anyone can become a passenger and forget to really ride. Happens to me every once in a while too. You're not really asking your horse to do anything but trot along. And since you're just coming back to riding there us absolutley no problem with that.
Just wanted to jump in a try to explain. It wasn't an insult, or rude, at all.
May or may not have helped, ha ha.
