how to walk on two-day pack

Press down with your heels. Do not push back with your balls of your feet: you have no grip, and you will only kick the air and kiss the ice. Press down with your heels, one after the other, and let your body drift forward as you rise and fall with it. Press, press, press. Hear the voice of your long-ago riding instructor telling you to let your heels sink behind the stirrup irons. Do not stand forward on the balls of your feet: the horse will turn and you will fall over its neck. Hold your shoulders easy. The horse will feel it if you tense them. It will throw him off his stride, and when he stumbles, you will go tumbling backward over his haunches.

Press down with your heels and post along.
