An *ahem* Business Question

So the other day, this horsewoman (My moms friend, I've never met her in my life) was looking at pics of me riding, and well, ..........she said I rode like a man. She said I was sitting on my butt instead of my crotch, like a woman should

I know that guys have got their....well, business down there; but are there separate (and proper) riding postions for men and women?

Also, could you tell me what you think of my posture and/or if it is manly?

Well I'm a dressage rider not western, but can tell you that there is no different position for men and women, a horse needs to react to the same aids ;)
I can also tell you that men generally have a better seat and ability to stay on than women, as they don't have that tendency to 'curl' their front and tip onto their crotch when something goes wrong - instead they sit back and thus engage their back and core... how it SHOULD be done!

Lol! No but that is a very weird thing to say! The only thing I will point out in those pictures is you need to keep your eyes up where you are going and not looking down at your horse.

But yeah, what Kayty said. Seat positions are about balance and about communicating with the horse and not about your gender. Unless you wanted to ride side-saddle or something.

I was at a website one time that talked about different riding positions for men and women. Not that it was desired to be that way (I don't think) but it showed how men and women tend to ride differently because our natural "conformation" is different. It showed a woman riding that looked very normal to me. And a man that looked to me like he was slouching. I thought the woman's position look much better! If I can locate the website, I will post a link.

Here it is! A really cool article on how men and women ride differently, because we are build differently.

Haha no!!! You don't sit like a man (that was somethingg really odd for her to tell you) and nah there actually aren't any postures for men and women both the same and I ride both of the ways you stated mostly at least I think no one has ever told me anything...but yeah...

I've been always told to sit on my butt , NOT on my crotch, and I'm a girl.
Sitting on your crotch is not only uncomfortable after a while (don't know, maybe that lady has Steel Panties or something f she's comfortable with it) but also makes your upper body lean forward and all your posture gets wrecked in time

Thats what I was thinking. And by the way she described how I was supposed to sit, The only way I would be able to is to lean forward.

Also, she was only looking at these pics I've showed you and she said that I shouldn't be riding such a "wild" horse and that I should drug her until I win at a few shows. ummm.....can I say noooo?

Great Article! I never even thought about the pelvis build having anything to do with it. Very interesting.
