To POST or Not to Post

Answer this question with tips from expert instructor Darla Walker-Ryder.
Posting is a more subtle movement than standing up and sitting down in the stirrups. Think of it as a forward and back motion of your seat and core.

If you’re a western rider, you probably sit when your horse trots (unless your horse is long-trotting, when you may stand in your stirrups for comfort). But while posting at the trot is unacceptable in the show pen in most classes, rising and sitting while your horse trots is a comfortable move for both of you. So when should you post, and when should you sit? Darla Walker-Ryder explains.
