    When I'm warming up at a show I usually do a nice long extended trot to get my horse using its hind end and stretching out through its back.
    You will see many, many pleasure riders doing this in a western saddle ;)

    I often ride engilish in a western saddle too. Expecially if im riding a young one. Western saddles are so much easier to stay in!

    I post all the time. I do try sometimes to sit, but for me with my bad neck, it's more comfortable to post.

    I actual find it hard to post in a western saddle and I find it more natural just to sit it. Then again, I train dressage a lot and being good at sitting any trot is something i've worked on for a long time, so that might have something to do with it. Sitting is almost second nature to me now. Lol. But no, most of the people at my barn who ride western use the rising trot a lot, so I don't think it's weird.

    I have always posted up until recently when I started doing some different warm ups with my horse in those I stay up in the saddle and I have tried to sit the trot and that is uncomfortable and I get weird signals from my horse when I do it so I don't very often lol
