The main goal of seat's work is to connect with your horse. The word "position" expresses a static image of the rider while we want to accompagny a horse in movement.
It involves a "dynamic approach" from the rider.
We have listed and illustrated 6 different dynamic approaches below to help you work on your seat. The work on our simulators allow riders to understand and adopt those approaches more easily.
This technical approach allows riders to maintain a steady contact between his behind and his saddle. Thanks to the back support, the rider hold his head and free his scapular belt which will allows him to get a good and soft hand.
The global balance also prevents riders from backache. Here is a video illustrating the global balance.
This technical fonctionning option is naturally adopted by many riders who try to remain seated.
More or less seated in your saddle, with a more or less important contact between thights and saddle.
The chest more or less leaning forward, legs bent without any contact with the saddle.
One stride in your saddle and one stride standing up on your feet.
One time in your saddle and one time standing up on your feet.
