Another of our lateral work routines. Can be used with leg yield or half-pass exercises and can be further elaborated upon. ๐Ÿด Notice the โ€˜staggeringโ€™ effect, encouraging us to execute small amount at a time, switching from directly forward movement to sideways and back again. ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฝ We often like to circle away into a canter transition to re enforce forwardness in mind/impulsion. โœ… Dressage must be fun for both horse and rider and progress will be achieved ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฝ

We loved our schooling session for Jodie and her fabulous horse Hugo. It is always important to appeal to the horse’s playful nature while training in all disciplines. Dressage, showjumping or cross-country, having the horse engaged in body in mind, willing to take on the task is greatly enabled by presenting the work as a game. It’s a question of attitude and the rider/trainer can be the catalyst for this positive interaction to occur.

Have fun with your horse, its is too important to be too serious about it!

Great basic training is the foundation to all equestrian disciplines. It is critical to avoid premature specialisation and to cement the basic all-round education.

All these basic exercises are […]
