The rider must also develop an understanding and feel for how they are influencing the horse. Your position and your own self carriage is reflected by the horse. The progressiveness of our system develops a …

Art2Ride Associate Trainer Program: Allison and Contigo: Walk, Trot & Piaffe

6th February

Hi everyone! I’ve got a lunge video for those still working on your lunging aides. In this video, I’m working on “leg” before “hand”. Leg is my whip and is designed to ask if Contigo will move his haunches slightly away from me and reach more deeply with more energy under his under his belly. Hand is my lunge line connected to Contigo’s pole and jaw and is designed to correct him if he shortens and tightens his neck and pole. When I send the whip out to Contigo’s inside hind leg, I want him to offer to move his haunches slightly away from me and reach more deeply with more energy under his belly without speeding up WHILE also lengthening his neck and lowering his pole. Eventually, I want to use less and less “hand” (suppling) as Contigo learns …

From the Blog!

Join me as I post weekly blogs covering many topics relating to Classical Foundation Training. I have intentionally left out the word "dressage" because many people have a negative association with the prevalent "crank and spank" approach or that it is a sport for only those who are afraid to jump.

Dressage as it is meant to be is an understanding of how to best optimize a horse's movement and ability to carry a rider, surely a benefit for any horse, any discipline. It is also important in maintaining your horse's safety, soundness and sanity.
