    Is it possible you mean to say pommel (or fork or swell) instead of cantle? Because lifting your knee isn't going to get your leg anywhere near the cantle.

    To finish the story...

    These Scottish immigrants to Ireland settled in the northern province of Ulster. Culturally, they remained distinct from the Irish. Later, when these (technically) Irish of...

    To quote H.L. Mencken:

    "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

    I think, like so many things involving horses, the answer is "it depends." For example, look up "position of exhibitor" in the AQHA western horsemanship rules and you will find the classic...
