The rider's seat and impact on the horse
The rider's seat and impact on the horse is of great importance, especially if you want the horse to work properly over the back. It will not work if you take too much contact on the reins or lose your balance. It will irritate the horse and then it becomes difficult to get it to work over it`s back. Unless it's a horse that has been working over it´s back for years, but these horses are rarely seen.
