I am a hunter rider.
As you would expect, I have heard the typical bad rumors about the saddle seat discipline, but I don't want to judge a whole discipline by a few bad rumors. I'm actually interested in trying it out someday, because it looks like a lot of fun.
However, I made a post over in equestrian about my first experiences with a real, bona fide saddle seat barn. The link is here.
I'm not trying to start a war here, and I'm honestly really interested in the sport and I think the high stepping horses are beautiful, but I'm hoping that some of the people in this community will be willing to answer some of the questions I asked in my original post.
Hoping for informative, flame-free responses,
