Posting,,,,hmmmmmm, funny is all I can say. I am in the process of teaching my self. I live in the sticks. Trainers? Well, few and far between, the one I do want to use is trying to make space for me and in the meantime im ,,,,,,well lets just say im TRYING. LOL. My horses are saints. One horse is very experienced and I adopted her specificaly for english riding and learning jumping and all that fun stuff. She's a sweet heart and pretty to boot. My other one,,well, lets just say he's a ham and a half,,,love him so much. Not schooled but fun,,,,hes like riding a pumkin, bumpy. SOOoooooooo, I tried the ole english, Wintec 2000 AP saddle the other day. Its a little small for me I tihnk, so ill be looking for a different one but it came with the horse so ill use it for now. I hopped on and walked, and walked,,,,,I itnhk I did ok on the walk lol. Heels down, hands I THINK in the right position and it went well. So, I thought lets try a trot. Or not? I trotted, and I popped, bounced, flounced, flopped and STOPPED. Ok, lets try again, POST Becka POST,,,,jut like you do in a western saddle,,,,,again, flop, tip, bounce, POST omg I did it a couple times,,,,,,,right yourself before you fall off, STOP. Poor horse, he was a saint. My other one, the trained one had a slight limp, stone bruise I tihnk s I took my gelding. I will be back in the Wintec again today,,,to try my luck at posting AGAIN,,,,,,,I really need to NOT laugh as im trying to do this, my horse tinhks im nuts and I almost peed myself last time. Have a great day everyone!
