Double post trot

Can I just say how un-fun this was in my lesson today? Anyone else ever have to do it? Is anyone actually good at it?

I actually think it is fun :3
I know, call me really odd ... but after you practice it and practice it, and really figure out how to do it, it's not that bad :) Just keep going ;)

It's REALLY good for balance and developing in "independent" seat, not just going with whatever the horse throws at you.

I'm good at it, but I know a little trick. It's not hard to figure out so I'm sure you will ;)

I don't even know what a "double post trot" is . I am currently riding without an instructor and would like to try this for a balance excercise...maybe.

I don't know what a double post trot is either!
Can someone explain?

It is when you are posting at the trot and post for 2 beats instead of 1

It's sit, sit, rise, sit, sit, rise.

If you can do sitting trot well, it's not challenging. If you are finding it tricky - do lots of sitting trot without stirrups to improve your sitting trot.

Double posting would be more like up, up, down, up, up, down. The opposite of changing your diagonal, its way more challenging!

Ah, I see. I don't find changing my diagonal too difficult but I've never tried double posting... sounds a bit challenging!
