It builds muscle in your legs, improves balance and can help you ride bareback as well. I practice it all the time, still not perfected but it's helped me so much! You want to put a little more weight in your thighs and move with the horse. In a lot of shows now they will ask you to drop your stirrups and post! Can be quite nervewracking, but practice makes perfect. Can be a lifesaver to if you have to get somewhere in a hurry in case of an accident or anything, especially on the trail or out and about.
