Now, the trainer that taught these girls proper position of riding and whatnot...
WC CH Callaway's Where There's A Will - YouTube
His riding position differs a bit. He isn't as worried about equitation. He is still a far cry better then some of the trainers out there as far as position. Some look like a sack of potatoes bouncing around up there. Their goal isn't worrying about how they look but rather, making the horse look it's best. I wish people would work a bit more on how they look in the saddle. I think the horses would enjoy less bouncing around on their backs. Ha ha

This rider is horrible...and needs to be one of the ones pulled off the horse and beaten with a buggy whip.

Couldn't watch it at all. Bad hands too.

Ha Ha Yeah but there are far, far worse than this guy. This guy is good compared to many of the "trainers" that show. Half the time I am watching them thinking, "how in the world are they not falling off?" as they are bouncing all over the place and always seem to be just on the brink of a major tumble.

I think the girls he taught are lovely riders.

Inga, I WAS young at the time --- 16 or 17, I cannot remember!!!! Now , I would be that trainer, hunched and flopping! Not really.... I have ridden TOO long to ever "hunch", um, I HOPE!

LOL I honestly do not know how anyone can hunch and bounce that much on a horse. It seems it is always the trainers. Those very same people teach others how to ride and their students do not bounce around like a sack of potatoes. Look at Scott (trainer in the video) students. They are lovely riders. It makes you wonder how they get on and don't feel just a little bit silly. It certainly doesn't look comfy to me and.... It seems they are most often just on the verge of falling off.

I have seen dressage riders too that look ridiculous with their head bobbing and flumping about. I know you need to move with the horse but if you look like a bobble head doll, it likely is taking things over the top. I have seen the very best dressage riders that look lovely and move with their horses without their head bobbling about. I guess each person takes what they want and throws away the rest when it comes to "how to ride"
