Someone told me I should try not to touch the saddle when doing posting trot. Is this correct?

No. This is incorrect. When doing the posting trot, you will gently rise and touch the cantle of the saddle in rhythm with the horse.
No you lightly rise and fall on the back touching the saddle until your backend has fully Touched the saddle
It's a good trick when learning how to post. You do actually touch the saddle but it's good to think of it as a hot potato and to bounce back up the moment you touch down
No u lightly land in the saddle
