Your Horse (UK) - - Better Riding -

1 Be­fore get­ting on your horse, set your­self a goal that you’d like to achieve by the end of the school­ing ses­sion and a short plan of how you’re go­ing to achieve it. This way your train­ing ses­sions are al­ways con­struc­tive.

2 Don’t give your horse a day off be­fore com­pet­ing. This puts him in the wrong frame of mind (he’ll think it’s an­other rest day) and this is when con­tact eva­sions could creep in – def­i­nitely not the best time for them to hap­pen!

3 Don’t for­get that it’s not all about your horse. Make sure you’re in good shape with a strong core so you can help him do the job you’re ask­ing him to do. Pi­lates can re­ally help.
