Spinoff - Wanless.. look to the outside in circles
While we already have an active wanless thread going about her "boards on" framework, I thought I'd ask about her assertion that one should not turn the shoulders to the inside of the circle and look to the inside, but should look to the outside of the circle by keeping the shoulders straight.
As Wanless has evolved her "boards on" framework, I wonder if originally, she was asking the rider to put the "boards on" on the inside, and without putting the "boards on" on the outside, this automatically turned the body to the outside. Then, rather than cause the body to get all twisted by trying to turn the upper body to the inside with only one board on, this turned into "look to the outside"
Looking to the inside (or at least at the inside ear of the horse) is such a fundamental part of classical dressage, I have a very difficult time just throwing that away.
