Why do men that show walkers sit like their back is broke and their necks stick out like a crane. You dont see the women sitting like that but ALL the men do.

I gues I don't know exactly what you mean, but I can say that men and women have pretty radically different pelvis shapes that markedly influences the way they sit a horse.

However, I suspect your point is more a matter of training or ?

BTW, that certainly is an eye-catching title.

They look like vultures, don't they? I have no idea, but I would guess some guy from back in the day won everything riding like that & the trend followed like most trends in the show world. Looks awful and to me, they remind me of child molesters when I see them riding those big lick classes, first thought that always pops into my head. I am hoping none of them are but I can't shake that association.

Some of us call that the "turtle position" because that's exactly what they look like

I wish I knew the answer to your question; many of us (all women) have asked the same thing.

We have come to the conclusion they probably have lousy balance and that's the only way they can balance themselves but that's just one of many very unsavory theories "we women" (that's the same as the "you people") have come up with - lol lol

If any of the men would like to chime in on this, "we women" would be more than happy to hear your reasoning behind that gawrsh-awful-you-need-shot-for-sitting-like-on-a-horse position

EDITED TO ADD: Hmmm, I like the word "vulture" too. How about "the vulture head sitting in turtle position!" :) :) :)

I have asked and asked and asked again and i cant get anyone to tell me an answer.

Tell me women have you tried it?
I have

after about 30 sec of it my back starts to hurt. And then i start getting leery like if he spooks im gonna go tompaling forward and his neck is going to become my breakfast.

next time you are on your horse give it a whirl see if you can tell anything that might give us some insight

Yep, I know exactly what you are talking about and the association is still there.
