More details of what to expect:
Step-by-step, we address posture and the theory and feel of riding to show the individual how all riding is governed by the same laws of balance which affect us in our every day movement off the horse's back. If this is not first addressed and corrected on the ground, it is unlikely the rider's aids can ever be fully understood by the horse since he will feel the smallest imbalance.
Simple aids such as understanding the different feels for bend, forward, straightening, transitions to the more advanced aids for lateral work, canter changes, piaffe and passage can all be understood and improved on the ground.
Expect fun and laughter between the serious moments and enormously improved body awareness that will improve your riding, whether you are novice or advanced.
Participants must wear trainers and comfy clothing as you will be expected to move, however exercises are not violent, so all age groups are welcome.
