"Is your horse getting fussy when you are riding? Maybe it's your hands!



"Is your horse getting fussy when you are riding? Maybe it's your hands!"


In this session Camille discovers that she has been twisting her riding position and keeping an uneven feel on the reins when she is focusing on keeping Polo straight. Now you can watch as Polo become fussier when Camille asks him to balance. Since Camille is using the neck strap, she realized that when she is asking for straightness or lateral work with Polo, that she has been twisting her riding position and what she was doing with her hands! This was a huge break through for her! Once she could feel what she was doing, Camille was able to ride more with her riding position and keep an even feel on the neck strap.
What did you see changing? Can you see how the neck strap made it easier for Camille to understand what she was doing with her riding position and rein connection?
