Historic Riding & Saddles

Knowledge of the various techniques used by our ancestors helps us to understand how the seat of the rider affects the way the horse moves. Throughout history man learned to sit in different positions and developed different saddle designs to meet his needs.  Whether it was the original classical seat of the Greeks and Romans, la jineta - the seat of the Eastern archers or la brida - the seat used for lance work or jousting, man has always found the best way to sit his horse to get the job done. 

Carol and her students give exhibitions of the various historic seats to schools and dressage enthusiasts as well as for museums.  She also teaches the various seats, lance, sword and archery work on horseback for those who wish to try something a little different.
