Connecting Your Seat to the Horse’s Feet

2018 Sunday at 1:30 p.m.; Bill Pickett Arena

Learn how to teach riders how to feel for the right moment and the right place to apply their aids to properly influence the desired leg and hoof of the horse. Transitions, lengthening and shortening stride, correct bend, and lateral work all improve as the rider learns to connect his/her seat to the horse’s feet!
