    I know I am an ammy nobody, who does not compete at the upper levels, but I don't really agree with the entire above statement regardless of Denny's/Steinkraus's credentials.

    This doesn't even really make sense though.

    If I have a horse that is a little fresh and playing underneath me, I feel most secure up off their back. That way the little bucks/happy dance goes on...

    This is such an interesting discussion for me.

    I have the opposite problem in that my preferred position is two point and out of the saddle. I hate putting my seat in the tack.

    So the opposite of what I was talking about; too excited and wants to participate even when it isn't his turn. I don't mind that half as much eventhough it can be problematic at times.
