Are you trying to stand or two-point? There's a difference. Also, are you balanced while posting? You will have to master the post first, and then work on your two point. Whether you are riding english or western, I still think it's a good idea to be able to post and two point. Once you are solid in your posting and two point, that is, you are balanced, and you can maintain a steady contact with the bit, you can work on double posting. To post, you sit one stride, stand one stride, sit one stride, etc. To double post, you sit two strides, stand two stride, sit two strides, stand two strides. Two point will help you position your leg where it should be, and double posting will help you keep them there. If you fall back, your legs are too far forward, and if you fall forward, your legs are too far back.
