Forward Seat Riding videos has made some videos available for free this week. Normally their videos are only available by susbscription.

The description for the first video: Roots of Forward Riding in America by George Morris. George Morris looks at how forward riding evolved in America. A style born of the melding of the French and Italian cavalry systems and influenced by the Thoroughbred horse. He describes how the forward riding system is focused on the leg instead of the seat and how it will always have a place in the show jumping sport.

The second video is footage from the Dublin Horse Show in the early 1960ís with George Morris reflecting on the forward seat style of riding. George, Bill Steinkraus, Frank Chapot and Hugh Wiley compete in this show.

Thank you for the post! I tend to think of myself as a western rider, but I enjoyed hearing George Morris discussing the forward seat. I liked his comments on adapting and blending different styles to achieve our own (American) style.
