Practicing Riding Position In the Saddle Without Horse

I like to clean and oil my tack while I watch movies in the evening, and it got me thinking. Is there a way I could get some extra practice in on my riding position in my saddle without a horse? Like, in my basement? I don't want to harm the saddle's tree or anything. Maybe it all sounds completely stupid, but I thought I'd ask!

I wouldnt try it... the tree can break so easily, so rather don't. But you can still practise, try like, a narrow chair, straddle it, and practise. That's what I used to do :)

Some people use an excersize ball- that seems like it would work well. . .

I have a free standing saddle rack I use for this. I put a blanket under it and my saddle on and do horseback yoga.
