Mini Series on Your Seat in the Different Gaits of the Horse – Part 2: Seat at Rising Trot

This is Part 2 of a 4 part series on the horse riding seat in the different gaits. After the walk seat, riders need to focus on the Rising Trot seat or known as posting in England. How should sit in rising trot, do we rely on our legs to rise and how can we tell we are on the correct diagonal.

In this episode Natasha explains the basics, but must knows with the rising trot seat and demonstrates them on her young Warmblood Gretchen. Enjoy the second part of this mini series.

The other three parts of this series are on:

The effective seat at walk (Dressage Mastery TV Episode 9)

The effective seat at sitting trot (Dressage Mastery TV Episode 3)

The effective seat at canter (Dressage Mastery TV Episode 11)

You need to think about the line of your heel, your hip and your shoulder – all in a straight line. You also need to think about the straight line between your elbow, your wrist and the horses mouth.
