    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 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.
