Oh my gosh, this lady sounds like an absolute fruitcake. There is a REASON why people all these years have been riding with their heels down. We don't do it because it's pretty or because George Morris says to. It's because it's the most secure and effective way for your leg to be stable and support your body! I'm a firm believer in sticking to the basics (Something I have heard George Morris AND Beezie Madden preach on!) because that's what works! Without a heel you've lost your stability and your leg, which means you probably aren't being kind to your horse's back! A horse that has a bad back cannot jump!! Wow. Run far far away from this lady.
