I've been taking reining lessons for a little while and lately, my instructor has been asking me to post the trot. That took a little while to get used to, but now he's asking me to skip every other beat. He tells me to feel the horse's movement and tune into that. For whatever reason, I CAN'T. GET. IT. My instinct is to move with the horse, so skipping a beat feels awkward.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Did it take you awhile to get used to it, too?
