Sometimes when I ride I notice some people seem to almost post during a canter. What is this called? When would you use it? Also, I am wondering when you would need to know how to hand gallop. I am hoping to enter higher level shows in the future and was wondering if I would ever need to learn how to do them. People are starting to tell me to count my strides going into jumps, how do I do that?
Thanks for your help :)
