    I could only learn by closing my eyes at a sitting trot & going with the feel of the horse & their 'lift.'

    For me my speed or rising depends on my event I am doing. Also the speed at which you rise and fall affects the speed at which the horses. If you want to slow your trot think 1,2,3 rise 1,2,3 fall ect ect

    Thanks, I'll try looking at the shoulders next time. There are so many things that you need to think about when riding. It's difficult.

    It is, and many people think it's easy as hopping on the horse and kicking!

    Posting is awkward.

    Rise & fall, with the leg on the wall.

    It is not. It allows the horse to move more comfortably. Once you get the movement and timing down, you start to look effortless while doing it and not so much awkward.

    Knowing me, it will take years.

    If that's your attitude about it, it probably will. Posting is nothing more than muscle memory. Everything seems new and confusing, but you will settle into it faster than you think.

    Okay. Knowing me, it will take one more lesson.
