The roses in the garden of the Queen of Arabia are not so white as thy body. Neither the roses in the garden of the Queen of Arabia, nor the feet of the dawn when they light on the leaves, nor the breast of the moon when she lies on the breast of the sea. . . .
There is nothing in the world so white as thy body. Let me touch thy body.

The Italian famous equestrian Federico Caprilli examined horses free jumping (without tack or rider), using photographs to document their shape over fences, and found that they always landed on their forelegs. He then developed his theory on the position the rider should take while over a fence: one that would not interfere with the horse’s jumping movement and most importantly one that would not touch the horse’s mouth.

The old jumping seat involved the rider using long stirrups, keeping his legs pushed out in front of him, and his body leaning back, pulling the reins, as the horse took the fence. This position had serious problems, first and foremost because the horse was uncomfortable being hit in the mouth over every obstacle. The position also kept the rider’s weight directly on the back of the horse, and pushed the rider behind the motion, sending his center of gravity behind the horse’s

Before, the dominant cavalry style was to ride erect, in a martial and rigid posture that negated all fluidity to the horse.
