LOL GH, I don't envy you sitting to that trot ;D You're going to have your work cut out, like the way he moves. Had my mare for nearly 7 months now.. two lessons twice a week, trainer sees me every time I ride, and I think we have another few months before we can consider it.. but, take it nice and slow and the rewards are bigger!

We do sitting from the first level.. I find sitting trot so much easier, especially for teaching a greenie to come from behind when you get round to it, and transition work.. so much easier to use hips and seat than rising it!

I'm sorry, I thought we had hijacked Eclipses thread to talk about competition work, where rising is optional at Intro and training as far as I know, hence I don't NEED to rise.

Training at home, or with my trainer, a whole different ball game!

Woah woah woah.. I am just saying that WE have to do sitting trot, thought it was strange you do rising, but I'm not making the rules.

All I was saying is gl with sitting that trot, I know I wouldn't want to, but I'm glad you hav a future goal for Ben. I think its great to have a goal to work towards, whether it takes 6 months, a year or two years.

Rising trot is mandatory at Intro. But optional at Training. At least in USDF tests (I'm not sure if Canada is same or different).

Sorry you are correct Val, optional at Training Level, unless there is a wonderful stretchy circle in the test, that part is rising

Duffy, I was just trying to point out that I won't have to worry about sitting trot in competition yet, which will give me time to save up and purchase some type of new age, reinforced, no bounce super bra, because I have a feeling that Ben's trot may lead to some eye catching moments, I'm just hoping they aren't black eye moments

^^ I think rising is easier though. But it's a personal preference, of course. Good luck with your new boy!
