YOGA ON HORSEBACK?
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
