Grey, that was uncalled for, in my opinion.
Jelena, while I understand the premise behind your idea, and applaud you, it isn't very feasible. A good position is integral to good riding, true, but riders learn how to use weight and slight movements to signal a horse. While a rider may appear quite still in the saddle, the very movement of the horse means we are constantly firing muscles and correcting our balance. Slight weight changes and shifting limbs even slightly can signal something to the horse.
Having said the above, perhaps your idea may be useful on a dummy horse, sort of like the robotic "Amerika?" improved sensors, or a sensory system to work on one's position off a real horse?
