Is this odd?

I find that sitting the trot is way easier than posting the trot lol anyone agree?

It depends on the horse. Selena is very hard to get into a rythym with posting so I like sitting her, but some horses...hell no.

Yeah, the horse I currently ride had a very very VERY choppy trot

Not odd at all. I've always gotten my horses to have a nice, slow, trot and it's so easy to sit it. It's why I prefer western, I like the casual relaxed feel. I did English for a few years when I was really young and learned to post and I know you can post western too.

My horse is very hard to sit trot, so no. Posting all the way! Lol

My horses trot is really, really difficult to sit and it takes a lot of energy to do so. On another horse I ride, posting would be equally as difficult because she doesn't trot...she floats.

I love sitting the trot, I find it easier to apply leg aids at the correct moment and I also enjoy feeling the power of a nice big trot with a lot of spring and reach. Once I learned how to do it properly I almost couldn't stop doing it, I have to force myself to post (for warm-ups and on unfit horses - and even then I prefer doing 2pt unless my knees are particularly arthritic that day).

Agree ^

She put it into words. So much easier to communicate with my legs and seat when I sit the trot properly.

I don't know...but I've always found it odd that it's easier for me to sit the trot in an English saddle and post in a western.
