Horse & Hound - - Letters -

Sir — Con­cern­ing the “Good week, bad week” fea­ture about the “lat­est” US craze of horse yoga (news, 18 Jan­uary), more than 50 years ago at the end of ev­ery rid­ing les­son, we were in­structed to cross our stir­rups and do “ex­er­cises”.

They in­cluded lean­ing

back­wards un­til our head touched the pony’s quar­ters, then lean­ing for­ward and lay­ing on their neck, touch­ing our toes and then the op­po­site toe, and then twist­ing around with arms out­stretched to look at our pony’s tail — all while main­tain­ing our cor­rect seat po­si­tion.

I won­der if this would be con­sid­ered yoga on horse­back? Sheila Leonard
