Videos of good posting form?

I am lesson-less for a while due to some BO conflicts(they instruct western and supposedly english but my faith in their english program is lacking). I had been working on my posting the last 6-8 lessons I had. I think I am improving but need some eyes on the ground to help out. I am enlisting my semi-horsey boyfriend for this. He's only ridden twh so he has no clue about trotting horses.

I tried to youtube some videos but some of the riders look awkward at best. Does anyone happen to have a few links to a rider with good posting form or a website he could look at to get a rough idea of what its supposed to look like? I'm not looking to critque anyone elses riding. I just need some eyes on the ground to help spot some of my trouble areas :) thanks.

In the video, her leg seems to be too far back and moves a bit too much, other then that great.

I've spent much of my
life
on the back of a horse, the rest I've wasted.

Yeah, the rider doesn't have perfect form but the video is slowed down enough in some spots to make it extremely helpful for someone trying to learn how to post AND post on the right diagonal. (I wish someone would make a whole series of 'how to ride' videos on YouTube and slow them down in some spots to make it easier to follow.)

I think her leg position is very good. Too many people have their leg out in front and are posting behind the motion and off the horse's mouth. She is lined up nicely and is posting with as much speed and energy as is required to match the lift and speed of the horse.

If she slowed down, the horse would have to slow down to match her . This is a good mechanism for slowing a horse if they are rushing, but this horse has a lovely, forward and loose trot that I would NOT want to slow or impede.

I agree with tinyliny about the horses speed. He is moving freely forward.

So that is the speed I want to go for as well?

Thank you so much for the help!

Yes. Just count, one two one two one two. Keep a rhythm. Sing a song... that helps!
