Senior Training ‘Spooky Saturday’

31st October 2020

10:00am

Information

Closing Date For Entries: 24th October 2020

A full day Senior Training with assessor coaches covering cross country, flatwork and show jumping within the day. We all know the Training Scale for the horse—rhythm, relaxation, connection, impulsion, straightness, collection—but at this session we will be focusing on a training scale for the rider! Working on position and developing the independent seat. It starts with … Balance and Alignment: No longer using any part of your body to hang on, so your horse isn’t blocked or having to compensate and can achieve balance and alignment in himself. Relaxation: Being free of tension that you clearly feel your horse and he clearly feels you. Understanding: Grasping the purpose and progression of your horse’s training and begin to know how and why he should respond to the information you give him. Communication: Provide that information clearly so your horse understands what you want and willingly responds. Control: Positively influence and direct your horse’s actions and behavior using your independent seat. B+ level riders to bring their double bridles again please!
