The Real World ... Blogger Style: posting

Tuesday, November 09, 2004


When I was twelve I learned to horseback ride in Australia. One of the first things they teach you is how to 'post' in the saddle. (I don't think posting is an American riding term. I think its British. ) Anyway, posting is something you do when a horse it trotting. You were supposed to thrust your pelvis up from the stirrups and let your ass fall back in the saddle with the horse's rhythm. This is so you don't bounce. So now when I think of posting, I think of the weird psychosexual dynamics of girls and horses. And also of the fact that horses fart in perfect time when they trot. Tallyho!
