i always thought when you were posting, that you were supposed to rise when the inside shoulder of the horse is forward. But, I heard others on the forum say you were supposed to rise when the outside shoulder is forward, which one is it?

PS: please don't gang up on me if im wrong about rising when the inside shoulder is forward =]

Actually when I post I have my laptop balanced on the horse's whithers and ensure that batteries are fully charged.

You are supposed to rise up as the outside shoulder rises.

I just posted from my Blackberry, and it didn't take.


I laughed at Spyder.

I also stated that you are to rise when the outside shoulder is rising.

At a trot... when the outside shoulder comes up, so should you. As it goes down, so should you.

When you canter... you know you're on the right lead when the inside leg is reaching. In trotting, you know you're on the right diagonal when the outside leg/shoulder rises.

So its like the opposite. :)

LOL Spyder. When I first saw this post I thought it was about posting on the forum not on a horse... hehe :P

Yeah, it's the outside, not inside. ;) When the outside shoulder goes forward, you rise. It's all good, no biggie!

There's some sort of rhyme I have heard trainers use to get students to remember this..
Fall with the foot on the wall or something? Anyone know the one I'm talking about?

Yes, lol... it's "rise and fall with the leg on the wall." I've always remembered it because of that saying. It's always the horses outside leg.
