Ask @andybooth : What do you think of the trending effect of ethological riding (accurate practice or not, mistakes…)?
Hello Amber,

I think I am responsible for this because of the demonstrations I made at the horse show where people saw me riding in halter, rope and freestyle.
I think I was not clear enough that it is a pedagogical means and not an end in itself.

As in any subject, there are drifts and I try daily to break the current image of ethological equitation which is assimilated to ride halter / cord and to make the show. In the long term, I want ethological equitation to disappear because it is an integral part of riding.
