    I've unfortunately gotten into the habit of posting from my stirrup and lower leg rather than my knees. I ride saddleseat and haven't gotten the time to go and get lessons yet at one of the barns in the area (my barn is a straight up english and western barn...only saddleseat rider right here ). Anyways, Do any of you have any tips on how to get my posting back into shape? Thanks so much!

    Also, I might start video taping myself to really watch what's going on with my you think that'll help at all? Thanks again!

    Just want to clarify to be sure we all know exactly what you are asking (you are pretty clear, I think I am making it confusing in my head).

    You want advice how to fix your leg to post correctly for saddle seat riding?

    I don't see a lot of saddleseat riders, but almost every one carries their lower leg away from the horse, braced out on the stirrup. I'm not sure how saddleseat riding is taught, but that is the polar opposite of hunt seat, dressage, and western teaching. I can't imagine posting without my leg around the horse... I'm curious to find out if there's a different way to post saddleseat vs. other disciplines.

    You might want to try posting without stirrups - that will take away your ability to push off from your feet and force you to use your seat and core muscles. It's hard work, and you'll be sore later, but it does help a lot!

    That is what I have seen too, Scout. But I do not know if it is the correct way of doing it.
