There is no trotting in a reining class, so therefore no posting.
They do it here, but we don't have big national shows here either. Just local shows.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Riding in two point in the Colorado Rockies would burn out your thighs!

I rode along with her in posting trot many times.....my knees are just fine.

When you are showing western, posting is strictly forbidden simply because that's the rule. As for just regular riding, IMHO, you can post if you dang well please. When you are in a working trot trying to cover miles at a trot on a rough riding horse, it's simply just too hard on both the horse and the rider to try to sit that trot.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I think she is a show snob, that never rides out side of the ring. When talking to her she made a big deal about how many shows she has been to. All of her pics are of horses with big shankes that she is hauling on, so I think she has more issues than not posting in a western saddle.

If you don't want to do it thats fine, but saying that you never do it, and if you do your an idiot that doesn't know the first thing about horses is rediculas. Yes she did say that. Oh well thanks for the answers every one.

My name is now my horses on a dor not my horse sonador
