Leg position. What are your legs doing in the transitions? S1 Dressage



"Do you know that what you do with your lower leg can make a difference in how your horse is able to ride the transitions?"

This is from Season 1. I had asked Trudy what she wanted to focus on, and she said that Ani tended to throw her nose up in the air and disconnect in the transitions. When this happens to riders, it is usually because the rider has disconnected in the transitions. This usually starts in the lower leg. It is easy to see as their heels are higher than their toes. Now you can follow Trudy as she focuses on staying anchored through her lower leg for her transitions in this series.
