RBR Saddle Research (RBR stands for Riding By Reasoning) by Monte Foreman

The most scientific saddle research ever done .

Click here to read:   Riding By Reasoning PDF



The trick to great horsemanship is to be at the right place at the right time with the least amount of fuss as possible.

Foreman was probably the most controversial author to ever talk about HORSEMANSHIP. Because most of it’s action is faster than the eye. He was the 1st to use slow motion cameras so all being said, Foremans Horsemanship should of been called "INTRODUCTION TO WORLD HORSEMANSHIP"

Teaching the World what to look for in performance and why it works. Lets see what makes a working horse work. Because the majority of horse owners ride without reason - system or knowledge.

The Rider must not only know more than the horse, he also must know how to help the horse. Like Barrel Racing when disunited in the hind legs he has no pivot or weight caring leg, this is the Riders mistake. That’s why the hind quarters falls to the outside. Going to the Barrel in the wrong lead and coming out in the wrong lead. No Folks, the horse is not being helped by the rider, instead they are being thrown off balance and the rider believes the horse should be good enough to figure it out on his own. Not going to happen! Without leg aid control and training. The horse is always guessing . The Riders legs aids must control the hind quarters other wise the horse is always at a disadvantage to handle with maximum efficiency it takes competent riding and training to stop disuniting. When the withers go lower than the croup, too much weight goes on his front legs making it harder and taking too much time to turn. With leg aids, a rider can stop the hind quarter from displacing or disuniting in a turn, rhythm and agility go together, you must learn as a good rider. Rein-Weight and leg aids for maximum control of the hind end to get much done.



 It’s the Footwork that Counts!

A Monte Foreman film presented by Boz Saddlery/Bozzage Training/ John "BOZ" Bozanich ( a Monte Foreman accredited instructor)

OVER 80% OF IT IS IN THE USE OF LEADS. Leads are the left handiness and right handiness of galloping horses. This film demonstrates more about left handed and right handed footwork, that has ever been known before by horseman all over the World. It is hard to believe that less than 1% of all riders in the world can do flying changes of leads on call.

Monte Foreman was the 1st. in the world to do a front foot first and hind foot first flying change on call.

Horses become chronically one sided because Riders who do not know leads make them that way . Horses are not one leaded by nature. The horse doesn’t have to be in the correct lead for every turn, but the Rider must always know what lead the horse has and when it is necessary to change it.The only maneuver a cutting horse needs is a rollback. A right lead rollback to a left lead then rollback to a right lead and stay head to head to whatever is in front of you, That Simple!

"Monte Foreman developed the first complete basic handle ever assembled."

The horses accurately use of the leads account for over 80% of their agility. Everything is done in balance with ease and in rhythm because of a well trained rider in our riding system. It’s like dancing the Rider has to Guild, because he is the only one who knows where they’re going. This also prevents pattern sore horses. Even in stops we stand up in the stirrups and check the horse down in balance. Monte Foreman was the main influence to the world on how to do slide stops with No slide ground, No slide shoes and No slide boots, just good old regular dirt and deep too. You can see now why it really is the footwork that counts. May you always ride a great horse and your great horse enjoy you more through "Bozzage".
