The Evolution of Equitation

Edna Lytle of Otasage Farm agrees with Morris' analysis of the ever improving rider: "Riding today is much more sophisticated.
Another topic on which Morris and Lytle would agree is the use of outside courses, either over grass or in large arenas with no fencing, to test a rider's overall horsemanship. These courses, which "required a more forward pace," according to Lytle, have pretty much disappeared from the modern equitation world. According to Lytle, at the "good shows where they have pride ... course design is more sophisticated and they ask more questions then they used to. Lytle finds that the biggest change in the equitation horse is the influence of the warmblood. "The warmblood has found its way into all aspects [of equestrian sports]," she acknowledges. Moore also says that he is seeing "more and more warmbloods" making their mark in the equitation classes.
