No, posting or rising trot is a way to ride the trot and you can post any type of trot. Extended trot is where the horse lengthens it's trot stride to cover more ground. Typically this causes the trot to smooth out a bit making it easier to sit the trot.

How can you keep your legs still when rising to the trot?

You can keep your legs still at a posting or rising trot by squeezing with your knee calves. If you squeeze with just your knee calves, from there down to the stirrups it should be still. Unless you have a horse like me where you have to bump him in a rhythmic motion to keep him at an extended trot. So the answer is to squeeze more with you knee calves instead of using your feet to post.

You have to have a good inner thigh to be able to post without stirrups. I can because I have worked really hard at it.

How Do You Do Sitting Trot?

To preform the sitting trot you should already have been riding at a posting trot and developed a good sense of balance. Begin by sitting deeply but lightly in the saddle with your weight in the balls of your feet and lightly wrap your legs around the horses barrel. As the horse trots try to let your ankles and knees absorb the impact but not bounce. You should be able to stay steady in the saddle enough to do a sitting trot.
