3 Shortcuts You NEED to Stop Taking in Your Riding Today!
Instant gratification. Equestrians often suffer from it. They are guilty of taking shortcuts. And then wonder why, after time goes by, they never really get anywhere.
The shortcuts are more like little circles. They feel like they're taking you forward initially, but you will inevitably end up back in the same place all over again.
Doing the work and putting in the effort also takes time. And yet, it is the riders who are willing to start slow and then, over time, speed up, that see the resul
Timing Your Transitions into Canter for Better Results with Your Horse
Timing is something we all understand. When it is working for us, it feels good. If it's a little off, things tend to feel rushed or stressed. I think our horses feel the same mixed bag of emotions and tension when the timing is off. In fact, bad timing often is the very thing that causes a 'hop, skip, and jump' into the canter.
So, why can it often feel so hard?! And why, is it that what some people say is 'easy' to feel, seems like a mystery to most riders?
Creating Space for Better Canter Transitions
Getting into canter can be a challenge for many riders. Okay, let's get a little more specific; transitioning into a good quality canter is a challenge! This is why I want to specifically chat about how creating space for better canter transitions is so important. I am a firm believer in putting the basics' onto autopilot. And your posture and position as you transition into the canter are just some of those basics.
Turning Your Horse versus Asking Your Horse to Turn; Which Do You Do?
It seems pretty simple, navigating a corner or bend with your horse. And yet, for many riders, this becomes a complicated task really quickly.
As the rider, you do not bend or turn your horse. You simply set things up and ask your horse to bend or turn...
In this episode, I want to dig a little deeper into how you can begin to make the transition from being the rider who is trying to control everything to the rider who is setting things up and allowing things to unfold naturally.
Here's Exactly What to Do In Your Riding This Week
What are your plans for your riding this week? Specific plans... Not what you think you will do. Or what you 'might' do if you have time...
One of the biggest things that hold riders back, particularly riders who are working alone, is the lack of a plan.
And this does not have to be the case. I realize that you have no real experience in creating the plan. However, you know you best. And, you also know what you want.
Audio Horse Riding Lesson - Noticing When You're Collapsing in the Saddle
You can feel it when your horse 'hollows', right? And you can also feel it when your horse 'grows a hand' &begins to carry himself. The feeling of contraction or expansion. Okay, so it makes sense that your horse can probably feel the same thing... Right?
And yet, so many riders fail to consider the knock-on effects that collapsing in the saddle cause. How, just like when your horse hollows, your collapsing affects the whole ride.
I think these podcasts are really great! I always felt different to equestrians like I was doing something wrong but after listening to this podcast I felt like part of the club. I hope you continue to make these, they have really helped me better my riding and my horse looks to be happier now to.
