    Do you post when riding western?

    I'm a jumper and an English rider most of the time, but I LOVE riding western, especially during the winter. But to be honest, I don't really know how to ride western "correctly." I still post at the trot, are you supposed to?
    Silly question, I know!

    In any western event I've never seen posting at the trot it's always sitting. I do post when I'm trail riding or at a barrel racing event. Other than that, I sit the trot.
    Don't think....JUST RIDE!!

    I ride both, and post and sit, and I know people who ride western, and I've seen them also sit/post.

    When I ride western, I may post;it depends on the speed of the trot/jog. I know many barrel racers post when "long trotting" their horses. While it's not something you'd see in a show ring, it's not inappropriate to post while riding western if it's more comfortable for you or your horse.

    I sit the jog and post the extended trot in whatever saddle is on the horse; western, aussie, english, etc.

    How do you post with a horn? Don't you end up bumping it when coming up?

    I post when just schooling, but if you're actually showing western, then no don't post. When you're not in a show do whatever you like

    Many post when riding the extended trot... That said often in a judged western pleasure class a judge will ask the class to extend the trot and anyone who posts is DQ'd so to speak... meaning if you had first you may now have second or less depending on the rest of the class and how the scoring is other wise.
