Thanks! That did make sense. So say the horse is trotting faster and bouncier the post should be more exaggerated (naturally bounced higher) than a slower smooth trot?
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 ;) Posted via Mobile Device
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??
