Tinyliny-thanks! It's really bareback I'm trying to sit a little deeper with. I know I don't have the problem in the saddle really (some minor adjustments here and there but over all is good)

Silverspur- The saddle may me too big. Okay it IS too big. But I'm stuck with it. It's comfy, fits him, and I don't think It gives me any big issues.

Katze-Yes I know it looks that way haha! Funny thing is I feel absolutely fine and have had no problems falling off lol I've galloped and jumped bales of hay that way, he's spooked, I didn't even know I did it till I saw pictures.

Shasta1981- Oh dear wish me luck figuring that one out! Off to youtube for videos..

Id say lots of no stirrup work. That saddle also looks to be an AP which is notorious for putting people in a chair seat and even posting if you shortened your stirrups and your leg followed the front of the flap you would end up in a chair seat again.

As for bareback (and in general) you are behind the motion of the horse. That means if the horse were to spook or shy at something you would be more likely to come off.

Chck out sally swift's books/theories on centered riding - even bareback that will help you a ton. You can still sit on your butt (sitting on yoru pelvic bones/crotch is never correct anyway) and soften your midsection while closing your hip angle a hare to keep you more centered and as such moving with rather than behind the horse's center of gravity.

Good luck :)

lol. I didn't mean to confuse you. Do you have a trainer? Ask her about posting at the canter.

its great that it fits him, but I do believe that a big part of the problem is the saddle. Because it is too big(you seem lost in it), you are sitting further away from the stirrup bars, and this will cause a chair seat. I can see in the photos you are forcing your lower leg back, and when you ride it can tip you forward and feel a little unbalanced.

I am stuck with it though, and still growing. Wider at least. I don't expect my butt to stay this small. I don't have the money to buy a new one. If I force my leg back, I don't notice. That is how I am comfortably in that saddle.
