Agreed, Natisha.

I told her the same thing on another thread where she posted these very questions.

Those horses need a professional adult trainer, or these children are going to get very badly hurt. The parents/legal guardian should know this, so I blame them for putting these children in harm's way.

I really want to have my feet pointed forward because I dream of showing competitively, in something, someday and since I can't do that with my current horse, I figure the next best thing is to get my position perfect while I'm trail riding for hours instead of spending hours practicing "bad" habits... If that makes any sense...
YOUR perfect position and MY perfect position are going to be different then Ricci's perfect postion. You know why? Because out bodies are different. The perfect position of your foot is one that is functional to you.

Right now I am reading the book Hunter Seat Equitation by George Morris, and although it is a book about english riding, it still has a good point. He says in the first part of the book about position and that the toes should not be facing completely forward but at a slight angle out....however, since we all have differently built bodies, everyone is going to be slightly different. *NOT a direct quote as the book is in my car, but something along the same lines.* Mr. Morris even points out in photographs of his students over fences saying the riders position is correct to their own conformation several times.

It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. --Epictetus
