It seems to me that if you are sitting with most of your weight on your butt in the saddle instead of the stirrups, you are going to not be able to do this very well. Maybe in a flat, groomed arena, but not on the trail.

This is especially true in inconsistent footing like sand or mud. The horse needs to be able to move freely as he/she will need to compensate for inconsistent footing. The rider needs to be balanced and nimble to help the horse not make the horse throw the riders weight around in order to be able to compensate for the footing.
