Balance and the Classical Riders Seat

Anyone interested in dressage and who watch our top Olympic echelon will acknowledge there is very little difference in the riding position of say Carl Hester, Richard Davison etc and those proud riders of the great European Schools, most especially Vienna, Portugal and Spain.  This is how it should be, yet it was not always thus.

Turning Old Precepts on their Head? - by Sylvia Loch

It worries me when people become fixated on one aspect of riding and in this case, a practice that’s as old as the hills - to the exclusion of all else. It also worries me that in ones attempts to promote correct, kind and empathetic riding – people may take this too far. When a holier than thou attitude prevails, it is often taken beyond the bounds of reason. In certain cases, political correctness can cloud common sense which is not necessarily in the best interests of the horse.  I have always understood that in making a case for or against a particular action or approach, this has to be based on truth. We protect the horse through well proven facts, not half-truths. Nature provides us with fool-proof principles, which are again fairly easy to prove, and would be hard to contradict. What goes up must go down.... gravity. A right angled turn is 90 degrees – geometry. A spine is never straight – whether in horse or human; it is composed of convex and concave contours – anatomy. And so on....

“Anything we can do to make the horse more comfortable, we do” - Major Miguel Tavora Clinic 3/4/5th Nov 2015

The Master, Major Miguel Tavora, quietly sits in the corner, observing horse and rider warming up before him. Now and again he gives the odd, short, crisp instruction before returning to silence whilst he watches on. Calling the rider over, he discovers what he needs to know before sending them away again, this time he instructs them to work away from the wall to begin with, changing direction across the diagonals regularly. Why? Tavora explains that “it is very easy for the rider to become lazy when riding against the wall”. Quietly, he then makes his way into the centre of the school, where the work truly begins.

Bringing The Weight Back! A Rebalancing Act

In riding and especially the teaching of dressage, it is all too easy for teachers or trainers to assume people understand a saying or expression – when in actual fact, they may not.  A good example is the term ‘on the bit’* which may mean several different things to different people and unfortunately has become something of a cliché

The term ‘bringing the weight back’ is altogether something else.  It is more than an expression since it is literal and in words, conveys the meaning very well.
