Sitting a collected trot is great, sitting a long trot, meant to cover ground-not so much!
I don't ride dressage , except to have taken a few clinics, and other then that, I think you post a true trot. I do show western, and very easy to sit a jog or an extended jog.
When I ride HUS, i post the trot-ditto on trail rides, covering ground. In fact, on trail rides, sometimes trying to beat a storm back to camp, where ground does not allow loping, I will alternate posting that trot with standing in the stirrups-long trotting, as opposed to riding some collected trot, as in dressage
So, are you schooling in dressage, or sitting a jog?
