Is it true that once you learn to post it is really easy to do, that its almost like second nature? How long did it take you guys to learn to post? Any tricks to learn how to use your upper legs and not rely on your hands to pull you up or you lower legs? If you have any stories on how you first started it'd help me cause i want to start posting soon. I am hoping that you can start in a western saddle and work my way to my english saddle.
I need as much advice as possible! (i would be riding a haflinger to learn and i hope to ride both the haffie and then a percheron gelding if i can get the hang of this posting stuff!)

I know that if you ride western you're not to post but at home i want to start to try posting, like getting the feeling a bit to see how my balance is before i start with the english saddle right away. I'm just getting started really and i just want to make sure i'm confident before i go trying something new. But it is comforting to here its not hard to get. It just really confused me when i was told you have to use your upper legs and not your lower legs and i'm like...what? But then i was also told that you can feel when it is right and i started to get that. We can't afford lessons so i'm doing this all on my own and i want to get as much advice as possible. Does it help to relax your body and just let the trot "assist" you in posting? (if that makes sense) I'm just trying to get my mind around the concept
