    Simple Groundpole Exercise to Ride this Week with Your Horse

    Simple Groundpole Exercise to Ride this Week with Your Horse

    Do you have 5 or 6 poles that you can use in the arena?  They don’t have to be the same length or width.  In fact, the more variations you have, the better. If so, I am going to encourage you to ride this exercise a few times this week and begin noticing the differences.
    It is one of the most simple and effective ways to develop your skills as a rider.  And it will help develop your horse as well…

    Improving Your Riding Coordination And Aids While Lunging

    Improving Your Riding Coordination And Aids While Lunging

    Lunging gives you a different perspective when you ride.  And often, this one simple change can be enough to burst through limitations in your riding.  
    Lunging gives you second by second feedback on how your horse is actually responding to your aids; not how you ‘think’ your horse is responding to your aids. 
    And lunging is perfect for equestrians of all levels. Novice through to advanced can benefit from adding lunging to their training program with their horse in order to see real progress...

    Artificial Aids when Working With Horses

    Artificial Aids when Working With Horses

    Many riders have a negative story around artificial aids. And yet, most riders use artificial ads on a daily basis, whether riding or on the ground with their hose.

    What is important to remember is that artificial aids are neither positive nor negative.  They just are what they are.  And you can use them to create a positive or negative reinforcement with your horse.

    What Does an Equestrian Look Like? Diversity in Our Sport

    What Does an Equestrian Look Like? Diversity in Our Sport

    Both you and I have a voice. I think it is important to begin using our voice right now to help our sport diversify. To change the status quo of what an ‘equestrian’ looks like.
    So much hurt has been, and is being felt, by so many people all over the world. It was being felt before now for so many equestrians. It is just that now, it is being spoken about.
    Equestrian sport has the ability to change.
    It starts with us. You and I are equestrians. And I believe that our sport needs our input right now.

    Your Half Halt on the Ground with Your Horse

    Your Half Halt on the Ground with Your Horse

    Sprinkled liberally all over the arena and every ride. That is how important the half halt is to your riding. However, it is also an important aid on the ground with your horse. And, it consciously practicing it on the ground can really help to clarify the aid for you, as a rider.

    So many riders think that the half halt is only for the saddle.

    However, I am a huge believer in groundwork and how practicing the half halt on the ground will help your overall riding efforts as an equestrian.

    Heels Down; The horse riding basic that many riders and equestrians misunderstand

    Heels Down; The horse riding basic that many riders and equestrians misunderstand

    It’s probably one of the first things you were told on your first ride. It is also, for many riders, a misunderstood concept. The truth of ‘heels down’ is that once you can correctly master it, it is an absolute game-changer for everything else in your riding.
    How much your heel is down will depend on what you are doing at any given time.
    Having heels down on autopilot will allow you to focus on your actual communication with your horse.
