    Here's the 2009 WGC.


    1. Look at how all those men are sitting like turtles, waiting for the announcement.

    2. Watch the winning rider grab hold of the mane as he brings the horse forward to claim his spoils (further to what I said about poor balance).

    3. And of course look at that turtle shell, on top of the horse, going around the arena

    Guess it's judged on the horse, not the rider?

    I agree but you don't see the Olympic dressage team hunched over they all look very upright and regal just as you should on a horse

    I, of course, was kidding .....

    I would guess that these guys have probably never had a proper lesson in their life and don't care that they look like that. Riding a jacked-up horse can certainly put your body in unique positions.. I'm certain that the women have to work REALLY HARD to look that proper riding those ... um ... gaits.
