I personally find that whether I can sit the trot or not has less to do with how bouncy the trot is and more to do with my own condition. If I get really out of shape or have a week or more off from riding, it can get hard to sit the nicest trot.... Also, if my back or hips are stiff or sore, its nearly impossible to sit... With regular exercise (for me, not the horse), it gets much easier. I try to sit 4 or 5 strides at a time and then go back to posting, gradually sitting for longer periods as I work up to it. But if you're not showing, and not trying to train the horse to do something that comes easier from a sitting trot, then by all means, post!
