A note of interest: Some saddler, Schleeze, iirc, makes "gendered" saddles; a grand idea, no?

I've found men have an easier time staying on than women, just because raw leg strength allows them to physically grip the horse's barrel.

Well the endowed part is kinda a problem with me, so he is right in that respect, at least their parts arent flopping around like ours

Women are actually better balanced riders in general because we have a lower center of gravity.

I am a woman with very little in the breast department and I don't have to wear a bra at all when I ride!

But anyway, the point is kind of mute because it's not like we can change genders anyway. Or at least we would not want to just for riding's sake!

I don't remember the result either, but I remember reading that article somewhere, maybe Equus magazine? Anyway, I remember looking at the photos she showed in comparison of male and female English (Dressage I think) riders and I remember thinking the woman looked more balanced on her horse, more poised and ready for whatever she was going to do with her horse. The man in the example looked like he was sitting so far back on his buttocks that to me, having not seen very many male Dressage riders, I thought he looked like he was sitting kind of "lazy." Like he was behind the motion of his horse. Apparently that is the "correct" way to ride. I remember the article saying that it would be physically impossible for most women to ride like that because of the shape of our tail bone. Strange, huh?

I haven't noticed the odd way of sitting in male western riders. Maybe it is there or maybe that "on your pants pockets" thing is more of a Dressage thing?

Here is the article:

Very interesting reading for all!

He is just one of those men that think they are the best at everything and women are inferior
