Keeping a light, following rein at the trot. The basics of Riding Positi...





"What can you do to finally know if you have an even rein contact... at the trot?"

This is Camille on Polo.  In this session we focus on Camille feeling that she can follow Polo's mouth at the trot and in changes of direction.  The horses head and neck stay pretty much the same at the trot, It is the rider that often finds themselves going all over the place with the trot movement.  Now you can watch as Camille discovers (this is typical for most riders)  when she gets heavy on the reins and when she disconnects her connection through the reins with Polo.  We are bringing Polo back from an injury and have decided it is time to go back to the basics.  This is a good thing for all of us to do in our riding. 

Are you ready to try this at the trot?  Be patient with your process as you might be surprised at what is really happening with your hands.
