    3 Exercises to Ride While on a Circle with Your Horse

    3 Exercises to Ride While on a Circle with Your Horse

    It is probably the most ridden shape for most riders, the trusty circle.  And yet, a lot of circles are uninteresting, uninspiring, and (if we're being completely honest here) a total waste of time for you and your horse.

    When ridden with a focused intention and purpose, the trusty circle can become one of the greatest ways to develop your horse and improve your skills.

    Here are 3 exercises you can ride next time you're in the arena to help you make the most of your circles with your horse.

    7 Circles, 5 Serpentines, 4 figures of eight; on repeat...? What's Your Riding Routine?

    7 Circles, 5 Serpentines, 4 figures of eight; on repeat...? What's Your Riding Routine?

    What does your average ride or training session with your horse look like?  Do you have a riding routine that you follow? If yours is leaning towards, or if it already is, a little too predictable; maybe it's time for a change? 
    While riding the same sequence often can sometimes be beneficial to your riding and training (more on that later), for the most part, it will only help habits to creep in.  And usually not the greatest of habits.

    Downward Transitions; How to Ride Consistently Smooth, Balanced Downward Transitions with Your Horse

    Downward Transitions; How to Ride Consistently Smooth, Balanced Downward Transitions with Your Horse

    What goes up, must come down.  For every upward transition you ride with your horse, you will follow it, at some point, with a downward transition.  For many riders, these can prove a little more complex to balance.
    Having to prepare and then guide both yourself and your horse 'downwards', while continuing to maintain forwardness, tension, and energy... It can feel more like falling into, rather than stepping into, the new gait!
    However, as with all things riding-related, there are things you can do to really begin improving each downward transition that you ride.  Implementing these changes can begin today, with the very next downward transition you ride with your horse.

    Riding Smooth & Balanced Upward Transitions with Your Horse

    Riding Smooth & Balanced Upward Transitions with Your Horse

    How well do you ride upward transitions?  It can feel a little frustrating & ironic how many of them are anything but 'upward' as far as energy & lightness go!  In fact, some feel quite the opposite; flat.

    Upward transitions are part of every ride with your horse. From the halt to walk one immediately after mounting up, to all of the others throughout the ride.

    The quality of each upward transition will directly impact where you find yourself with your horse immediately after the transition.

    Horse Riding Skills You Must Develop in Order to Successfully Train Your Horse

    Horse Riding Skills You Must Develop in Order to Successfully Train Your Horse

    Many riders have a desire to school and develop their own horse. Yet, a lot of these riders don't believe they have the necessary skills they need in order to make this a reality.  The fact of the matter is that you are always training your horse. Every single interaction.

    Through your actions, intentional or not, you are always communicating to your horse. 

    However, if you're not consistently improving and developing, it stands to reason that this will eventually impact your horse.

    Creating A Warm Up Plan that Gets Results in Your Riding

    Creating A Warm Up Plan that Gets Results in Your Riding

    What would happen to your riding if you began to put a little more effort and intention into each warm up? Many riders are literally setting a timer for their warm ups with their horse.  5 minutes of walking, followed by some trotting and maybe a canter or three...

    Your warm up is a way to set the tone of the whole conversation with your horse.  Whether that is a groundwork session, a lunging session, a ride in the arena, or a ride on the trail.

Super podcast

I subscribed to Strides about a month ago and have been listening to the lessons at every chance I get regardless whether I'm near my horse or lying in bed at night. I love how everything is so clearly described and the useful analogies throughout.
Top class podcast and idea!
