Polo Seat
Similar to the half-seat, the upper-body is inclined slightly forward, balanced with their weight in their stirrups, with their seat bones free of the saddle. The primary contact with the horse in the polo seat is through the knees and thighs.

Polo Stance
Similar to the “two-point position”, the buttocks is completely clear of the saddle, leaving the rider’s legs as the only points of contact with the horse; allowing the horses back and haunches to move freely.
