Horses - Behavior Issues, Breaking and Training/posting at trot
Expert: Bobby Passons - 2/15/2013
Question hello sir, why it is important to post while trotting. what happens if i don't post? can you please tell me how to post?
Answer You don't have to post at a trot. Posting improves balance on the rider and encourages forward movement from the horse. If you don't post, the horse should slow to a jog and not a trot. Bend at the knees to propel your body up while trotting. Go up and down in the saddle. Count "out loud" "up...down". You will soon get in rhythm with the horse.
I can answer questions concerning horse training, foundation work, colt starting, western riding, rider confidence and problematic horses.
20 years in horse training. Starting colts, problematic horses, rider confidence and Western riding. I have specialized in training good/safe trail horses. Shown in western pleasure, halter and trail classes. I worked in West Texas gathering wild cattle.
