    Not necessarily. Obviously, you would post differently on a horse with a very big trot, than how you would post on a smoother horse. However for the most part your post should be as minimal as possible. Enough that you can see it, but you also shouldn't be throwing yourself out of the saddle. I just find if you let the horse bounce you up for a few strides it helps keep your posting lower when you post for yourself. You could also try posting either bareback or without stirrups. It's much harder to post high like that ;)

    Ok thanks. Just out of curiousity, why not post high? Is it incorrect or does it bother the horse?

    You know... I'm not entirely sure. I highly doubt it bothers the horse. I think it's more of an appearence thing, because you don't need to post higher and it looks smoother when you post lower. I dunno. Anyone else have an idea??
