yes, you can post without stirrups, only it's really really REALLY hard -
as robin herself said in one interview, getting her stories down on paper
the first time is harder than anything, even harder than posting without
stirrups. robin has also said that harry's vaulting into the saddle(without
a mounting block or stirrups, etc) was wishful thinking, that robin could
never hope to do that herself, so maybe harry's posting without stirrups
and not getting massive leg-cramps is also wishful thinking...
