Food for Thought

“A clumsy rider will hardly be embarrassed on a trained horse. The most skilled rider, on the other hand, can get into the most embarrassing situations on an untrained horse. For that reason: Always focus on the horses, not on the people. For in order to give correct aids, they have to sit correctly. But the most beautiful seat is useless on an untrained horse, and it is much more difficult to teach and to learn a good seat on an untrained horse, because everything becomes a struggle, whereas on a trained horse, who is completely supple, the seat falls into the correct shape all by itself and maintains itself in it.” – Otto von Monteton
