Because in America, "stock saddle" implies a western saddle. Australian stock saddles are simply called Australian or Aussie saddles because Australian is needed to differentiate from a western stock saddle, and stock is dropped as redundant.

posting is when a rider rises and falls in the saddle in acompanyment with the horse's rythm at a trot. It makes the trot MUCH nicer to ride, as you don't plop up and down, and is nicer on the horses back for that same fact. Usually it is seen as an English thing, however, as we are discussing here, many Western riders do it as well.

Just saying. Arena events can define the western riding horse. For example reining, a quick thinking horse. Cuting, a horse with cow sense. I think its called ranch remuda, ranch sorting etc all come from ranches and define what they do out on the true ranch remudas
