The video kewpalace posted was good! Here is another demonstrating the difference between the jog and the extended trot.


Horselovinguy did bring up an interesting point about diagonals. I don't think they ding you if you are posting on the incorrect diagonal?

As others have said, ranch riding is supposed to show off a horse's ability to work. Think of how you would ride out in the open, on a ranch: ground covering gaits instead of super slow, overly collected, falsely framed gaits. Ranch riding celebrates the working partnership and ability to get places and get things done.

I agree, personally. I don't know anyone who rides out to check cows at a trot and STANDS in the saddle the whole time. You just post. It's what is comfortable.


Granted, I know that showing and "real life" don't necessarily coincide, but since ranch riding is supposed to be more "real life", that's why I like to post.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

First you get with the horse, then you get the horse with you.

Thanks so much for the help guys! This was Clouds first horse show and my first time doing ranch classes - not to mention my first time back in the show ring in probably 6 or 7 years. Cloud ended up earning himself a reserve champion in the Ranch classes! You guys are awesome!


Oh... and I think he might have been confused at one point because I think he decided to do a commercial break for Cowboy Magic shampoo - for the Manly Mane...
