The point of my asking PP students this question is that Linda, in Level 1, teaches to ride "like Charlie Chaplin", I.e., toes hanging out as much as they naturally would, no effort to change anything, THEN in Colleen's collaborative PNH dvd, she tells Linda to turn all in. So, does that instruction replace the L1 instruction, or what?
I guess that no PNH students want to explain, so thanks to other contributors, anyhoo.
Have you asked Linda herself? I would assume that if she is endorsing the Kelley lady, then she has changed her approach to match Ms. Kelley's.
I think having the toe face more forward is the long accepted and taught method in dressage, and in hunt seat. It puts more surface area of the whole leg, thigh and calf, onto the saddle. When jumping, however, I think folks tend to have the toe out more so that they can get the lower leg more wrapped around the horse, for security.
