This blog post is a call to action for riders to choose a Dressage competition or challenge to prepare for.
Most horses start their ridden career with a degree of one-sidedness...
We’re definitely in the grip of winter now and it can be a real challenge to get motivated to ride at this time of year. Time is precious and here are my top tips for riding in the winter:
The first basic ‘rung’ of the German Scales of Training is rhythm, a key component of the training of any ridden horse. However, for me rhythm can only really be achieved if the horse is relaxed.
I’m a big believer in rewarding my horses when they try hard, or do something that I ask. But I’m quite particular in how I reward & praise them.
I believe that it should be a true twoway conversation, where I can request something from the horse and he can respond.
Rhythm means how regular the steps are at each pace. Every stride should be a consistent length, height and level of impulsion (energy).
