I agree with that.
I would consider myself a 'natural' rider. I never had formal lessons until last year, yet jumped on horses I didn't know and could win equitation, patterns, western riding.. didn't matter.
I did 12 years of ballet and competitive dancing when I was young, and played soccer for well over 15 years. I have excellent balance and rhythm, and I have always been able to 'read' animals very well. All things you need for riding horses ;)
