I think the word posting is throwing me off ... more of a soft fluid seat would be how I would describe it..

I think there is a difference between a fluid seat and posting.....

I might be wrong, posting might not be what the OP is describing. But there are people who post at the canter. Truly post. (That is what I have heard it referred to also.)

I showed KCHFuller the difference yesterday. Our trainer doesn't teach it, nor advocate its use in any way nor do I do it in the show ring, but it has its purpose for me in a warmup.

Not sure if what I'm saying has been said...I apologize if it has I didn't read through all of them.
I really don't get it while a rider is in a course, I feel like it is a distraction and the rider should not be focusing on what they are doing with there butt but instead the course, the strides, ect.

BUT

I understand why riders do this in on the flat in hunter classes. Going in a half seat during a hunter class allows the horse to move more freely and open up there stride. Thus they look better, so they can place. It actually does work because less weight is on their back.
