For Radar--Hang Seats

Prof. George Keller used a few hang seats. This hang seat above, and a couple of example's in below threads are braced against the arena, eliminating the need for front legs, but you have to have a barred arena to brace against. I mentioned the seat's tipping off the arena. Back in the day of "chase them along the fence(yeah, yeah I know only the European's chased them, the Americans called them to them) hang seats braced against the arena allowed the animals to run under them, instead of colliding with the legs and upsetting the seat, or torquing it sideways. If you study old Mable Stark photo's she was about the most "European" method American trainer there ever was.
