Re: [RC] SAUDI Arabia's Latifa Al Shaikh - riding posture - Maryanne Gabbani

You can always tell one of the grooms from Nazlit Semman (the area of the notorious tourist stables near Giza) by the way they sit a horse with their legs out in front. It is secure and the guys there are usually riding untrained horses so it makes sense, but it marks them for life because they also ride trained horses like that.

Watch the saddle bronc and bareback riders at the rodeo.  They ride with their legs out in front of them like that because it's a very secure position.  While it may not be efficient and comfortable over 50-100 miles, it's a position some riders just seem to fall into (maybe not quite as extreme) as they get tired.  It's also the position that I tend toward when I'm riding colts, for my own safety.
