    I spent most of my youth riding bareback and still do. I also use treeless saddles.

    I too have had success in using the halt (and stand) as a reward. I also practice halt (from various gaits) at the end of a lesson so when I get a good one I can quit on a good note.

    I have no doubt that if custom saddles with large thigh blocks were more available to these riders they would have used them. Things evolve and styles change.
