Trotting or jogging your horse is a faster pace than walking and will allow you to cover a lot more ground. In the trot the horse will pick up and land one front foot and the diagonal hind foot at the same time.
Tack up your horse using English or Western tack. Mount your horse.
Keep 60 percent of your weight in your stirrups and 40 percent in your seat.
Cluck or kiss to your horse at the same time. These are both noises you make with your mouth to get your horse to move.
Get into the rhythm of the horse's movements and relax. Remember to breathe. Holding your breath creates tension in your body that your horse will pick up on.
