Re: [RC] diagonals - Beverley H. Kane, MD

In addition to rules for diagonals on right and left circles, my endurance
mentor has taught me to post on the uphill diagonal and the outside of turns
in the trail. Wrt hills, if you're traversing a hillside, it is more
balanced for the horse to have us rise on the shoulder that's on the uphill

Also, I have stopped jigging in more than one horse by posting the jig on
the diagonal that they hate. We make the devil's bargain of them settling
into a walk or working trot in exchange for my staying off their awkward
side (or maybe it's -my- awkward side) for a while.
