Ik was een artikel voor Jos aan het zoeken nav van de vraag maar via [rijtechnische problemen] (waar ik het artikel had zien staan) kwam ik terecht op deze dingen (wat dus niet de bedoeling was maar wel grappig)
In today’s dressage you will find mostly women, who are doing such funky things (the men too) with their hips and butts when riding, and one need not to wonder why most of the guys prefer to watch the women ride (nice tight riding pants) rather than to do it themselves. To some sense it is almost erotic, especially in the “new way” of posting when sticking their hips out and in; hilarious and very entertaining. Well… for some, but surely not for the horse, when the often too heavy butt is landing on the cantle and mercilessly pounding the back of the horse.
The English style of jumping (sitting in the horse/leaning backwards, still often seen in the steeplechase today) was abandoned long time ago. (If you say that you ride English, you should think twice about what you are saying. The saddle does not justify a style.)
