We are an information podcast breaking down the How To's of dressage. All of our episodes are put together by British Dressage judges to help you train your horse correctly, get higher scores and win your next dressage competition.
How to Ride a 10-Meter Loop
Although the exercise sounds pretty straightforward, it’s often ridden badly, costing precious marks unnecessarily.
How to Increase the “Crossing of Legs”
In the directive column on your dressage scoresheet, you’ll see the phrase “crossing of legs” alongside some lateral exercises, namely leg-yield and trot half-pass.
How to Position Your Horse for Lateral Movements
Take a look at your dressage scoresheet, and you’ll notice the word “positioning” appearing in the directive column alongside the lateral exercises.
How to Ride Working Canter
For most young horses and those changing disciplines, for example, ex-racers, canter is the most difficult gait to master.
How to Use Spurs for Dressage
More advanced work demands a very precise reaction to your leg aids, and spurs can be used to refine those aids.
How to Activate Your Horse’s Hind Legs
In a nutshell, an active hind leg helps to develop the horse’s engagement and, ultimately, collection.
