Unfortunately the place I like is too far away for weekly lessons, so I've been looking at other places. I came across a stable that looked pretty good, but I didn't realize that they are a saddleseat stable.
I have NO experience with saddleseat, but it seems that a lot or all of the riders I've seen are riding with a pretty pronounced chairseat. Is that normal or expected? Can she get a good "base" in all types of riding by starting with a saddleseat instructor?
I would go check out their program before I signed her up of course and I'm leaning more towards a jumping type program anyways..... But I'm still curious about this.
Please don't take this as an "attack" on saddleseat riders either, as I said I just have no experience with it.
