Topic: Discussion about the important differences, in concept and practice, between various horse postures and working to gain the right frame while our horse is working. We talk about the two essential postures for riders, vertically upright or crouched in a half-seat posture. But both essential postures still allow for huge variances in coordination for all riders. The same is true for horses. There are essentially four basic postures, related to the use of the spine, but an allowance or variance within each posture depending on the horse. Also some discussion about how much our human hands and use of the reins can influence our horse’s ability to balance and change postures, for better or worse!
