    Hello!
    If there are any horse people on here, can someone please explain to me a diagonal?
    I watched some YouTube videos and I'm kinda starting to pick up on it, but I definitely need a lot more practice! Does it matter which diagonal I should be posting on when I'm trotting straight?
    Thanks!

    When crossing the diagonal, you should be changing diagonal at X

    So sit for two beats of the trot, and resume posting. This changes your post to be sync with your horse’s change in direction. Hope that helps!!!!

    Yes, I ride alot! But I am afraid I can't help you with that question. But @sassysarah might know! Do you have a horse?

    Also, while Youtube can be helpful, in my experience a trainer is the best. If you are dedicated to riding, it is in your best interest and your horse to develop proper skills from a professional who can watch you, correct bad habits and explain things!!!!:)
