How do I perform a good posting trot?

Exercises To Perfect Posting Trot

Develop feel for your upper body in unison with horse's motion. Bend at the hip and adjust the open/close angle between thigh and upper body. This fluctuating between an open/close angle of the hip, will allow you to feel yourself ahead of, with or behind your horse's motion. If your strength is weak use crest support by placing your hands on the crest and pushing into the horse's neck. This will help to support your upper body until you develop more strength and control in your hip and waist.
