Let the horse throw you up, and don't try to over post. Can you do it without stirrups?

Okay, focus on letting the horse throw you up instead of standing up in the stirrups. With stirrups if you're doing it right it should feel like you're being tossed forward and to his inside ear.

you're supposed to post with your thighs, so if you can post without a saddle fine and in the saddle fine, you're posting with your thighs. but, if you can't post at all bareback you're most likely relying on your stirrups for posting. also if the trot is incredibly smooth it can make it harder.

I have the problem of over posting too(with stirrups)!! When I post bareback I let my pony throw me in the air, but my pony has a smooth trot so most the time it doesn't help much. One trick I used is I would push up with my hand on my pony's wither's . That would help me go higher- and doesn't make me look like a beginner. Then when I got strong/good enough I didn't have to do that any more. Hope this helps.

She has a VERY rough gait, but its also smooth(if that makes sense) so its kinda hard. But yea, im relying on my stirrups a lot, but idk how to fix it?

Either just keep riding bareback or take off the stirrups completely helps a lot. Once you've done that for a while it'll be muscle memory and the same with stirrups.

Your lower leg shouldn't be moving at all when you're posting, so try to concentrate on that and you will end up using your thighs more
