    I have been riding in the wide track Compositi stirrups that Dover sells (the Royal Rider knockoffs mentioned above) for a few years now and they are the only stirrups that don't make my knees and...

    I think the OP is being totally reasonable- I've flown much farther to try horses! If OP thinks the horse will be a great match the flight is a relatively small part of the investment.

    The above two posters say it really well!

    He needs to learn to stretch forward and down while carrying himself properly (i.e. not on his forehand). Long and low and forward. I had a young horse...

    I think there are a few main reasons why people don't do it, as others have mentioned.

    Some fall into the ignorance category- they (or their parents), don't think they need lessons.

    Hunh. What would that do, I wonder? It seems counter-productive. Something along the lines of riding a horse in a tight standing AND a three ring lifter (which I saw the other day)?

    I have never seen or heard of the pvc thing, but it sounds like something that could go pear-shaped pretty quickly.

    SuzieQ- do you really longe a horse every time you change its noseband? That...

    I think there are a lot of ways to do it, as this thread shows! I was taught inside rein outside leg as a kid in hunterland. I ride with an eventer now, and both my horses (one events, one does...

    Hah- boosma47 said it better than me- the center of gravity is key!

    Another interesting video- a side by side of John Whitaker, who rides in a more forward seat, and Beerbaum. Both balance...

    So, if you watch German and Dutch riders, they don't actually ride behind the motion. That's bizarre- riding behind the motion over large fences can make a horse jump flat and weights the hind end-...

    Well, not to be an ass, but I found some videos and a) the horse looks like he has some major mouth issues, but I don't know since I'm not there. However, the head twisting sideways is pretty...

    Wait, but why? I would be irritated on my friend's behalf if SHE was upset, but then, also, I would tell her to do something about it. But if she didn't care, why would I care? I'm not the person in...

    If it isn't your horse, and the owner doesn't care, why do you care?
