Imagine that your seat bones are the prongs on an electrical plug. When the plug is falling out of the wall outlet, your appliance cannot do its job properly because it is lacking a consistent connection. The plug must be moved straight into the outlet for the connection to work most efficiently. In the same way, our seat bones need to be connected and fully plugged into the horse for greatest influence on the horse. Being plugged in also has a direct impact on your ability to stick to your horse (Illus. 43).
Deep seat bones — For the seat bones to be deep and plugged in, they must follow the horse’s motion and be connected fully to the horse’s back.
Following — The following seat is free to move with the horse’s motion. Shock absorbers are free and movable in the rider’s lower back, hip, and knee and ankle joints. The rest of the body sits tall, soft and relaxed.
Connected — While the seat must move with the horse, the seat bones still need to be plugged deeply into the horse. If they are not plugged in, see Illustrations 10 to 16 for suggestions.
