What Spyder said. She knows her stuff.
I just want to add, POST SMALLER! Honestly, most every rider will post HUGE while trotting, which just encourages more movement from your horse while also throwing your lower leg off balance. So use your thigh muscles and post SMALL, your crotch should NOT come above the pommel of your saddle. Calm your mind, give her a little half-halt, and slow YOUR rhythm down.
Exactly, I always tell students to think about posting only an inch out of the saddle. You'll obviously post a little higher, but it really makes you think and slow down.
As you slow down your post, the horse will slow down with you.
