I personally like it without the abuse stuff
Saddle seat. Is specialized with American Saddlebreds and their natural high stepping trot. With their natural headset and tail. I can't say they are not abused at other barns but definitely not the place I ride at. But all horses are mistreated in all disciplines. Morgans , Arabians, and Friesians can be used also!
I don't know much about ot, can you tell me more?
