Definitely agree with this.

Oh and when my reiner is really high and I need to trot her down generally I posted ... less effort than trying to sit her bouncy stride =P

When I ride my all around horse, if I'm working on the english I'll still ride in a western saddle when I school. So I'll post then too.

I don't know about the non-horse stuff on expertvillage but the horse stuff I have seen is at best really basic and often wrong or dangerous. I didn't watch the clip when I commented.

That's exactly how I view her information and most of the other horse info on there. Never seen any of the non-horse stuff

Can not say about those videos in general. I will say that THAT video there was nothing wrong or dangerous about the info given. It was basic as to how to post what it was and what a Diagonal is.

Oh, gotcha! Well maybe I'll stay away from those videos just as a precaution. Just wanted some people's opinions on the practice. Thanks :)

When I was taking western riding lessons years ago we were taught how to post. As most on here have already said I don't think there is anything wrong with posting in a western saddle. My personal preference is to just sit the trot though. :)

I was taught how to post as well, and I'm a western rider, and I also know what a diagonal is. Everyone should know what a diagonal is whether your english or western, IMO it's part of the basics to horseback riding. The first time I was taught to post was posting bareback, than when I tried it in the saddle it felt like I was getting bumped up real high lol. I'm still a western rider, to this day, and probably always will be. I also prefer to sit the trot though, as long as its slow like it should be.

I think it is a matter of choice , if you are not showing and just schooling or riding for pleasure it is def. More comfortable for horse and rider to post I feel especially when the horse's trot is not very smooth.

I also feel that it helps develop more of a independent seat for the rider.
My daughter finds it easier to post than to sit the trot ...she just started riding English.
