I can sit my QH he can do a nice WP trot. And very easy to sit. My Paint on the other hand depends I can sit it but his big trot will help me post so its less work for me! And my moms horse is pretty easy to sit most of the time.

I like sitting Dancer's trot bc it's basically like a western pleasure jog unless I push her. Very smooth and posting takes too much effort lol.

Page I can go either way on but she tends to be rushy and I feel I can have better rhythm posting.

I hate sitting Belle's trot. She's a 28 year old TB with, even if it's slow, a big bouncy trot that looks lovely from the ground that is VERY difficult to sit. You have to really collect it and be good to sit it well. My trainer told me if I could sit her trot nicely I'd be able to sit any horses trot! I like riding it in 2 point best :)
And my goodness it takes muscle! I can be riding Page daily for an hour+ and be fine and then ride Belle for half an hour with some trotting in 2 point.. my muscles will be so sore the next day.

My horse's trot is like a jackhammer so posting is way easier on him. Have ridden horses with a trot that is so smooth it's easier to sit than to post on.

What I don't get is that my horses trot is FAR from smooth as well, but sitting is easier for me lol

On my big gelding, sitting the trot is hard, posting on him is best. But on my little mare sitting is easiest, and posting on her is hard for me to collect her.

I love posting my arab's trot way better than sitting it in the saddle but an arab bare back is the easiest trot to ride sitting and their canter is really smooth too lol if that makes any sense. BTW when you sit the trot or change diagnols constantly you can talk to both back legs while trotting & posting you can only talk to one hind leg...when you only talk to one leg horses aren't how you say smart enough to work the other one so they begin to favor one diagnol more than the other :) so their are pros to sitting the trot if you don't lock up your seat when doing it and you know how to use your leg aids when doing it.
