[RC] Chair Seat - sherman

Title: Message
Interesting information, Terry. I've wondered too if the riders hold the chair position for 100 miles or if it's just one of the many positions they use during the ride. Still, it seem the ladies have no need for the chair seat, so maybe the guys would give it up if they wore compression shorts?

Well, I question whether the riders did the entire 100 miles in this position. Can anyone vouch for that?  It may be just the photo at the end and the rider is tired and changing position? (I know I've done that) 
In any case, I wanted to condense and share this information on riding seat progression through history, from Dr. Deb Bennett's very excellent and thorough book "Conquerors" which shows pictures of ancient riders sitting literally on the horse's croup
