Saddle Seat

Saddle seat riding designed to show off the trotting action of certain horse breeds. In the United States the style developed into its modern form. It is also seen in Canada, South America and to a lesser extend in Austrailia and Europe.

Particiarly at a trot the goal of Saddle seat riding is to show off the horses extravagant gaits. There are sometimes confusions in the united states between Saddle seat and Hunt seat riding. The difference between the two styles is that Saddle seat is all flat work meaning there are no jumps. While Hunt seat is based on the tradition of fox hunting and not only has flat work but also jumping.
