WHAT DOES GOOD BAL­ANCE LOOK LIKE?

Your Horse (UK) - - Train With Piggy -

Bal­ance is linked to rhythm. To help your horse de­velop bal­ance, ask him to step un­der the cen­tre of his belly with his hindlegs. When he does this, he’ll lift his back and start car­ry­ing more weight on his hind feet and less weight on his front. Once you achieve this, he’ll be­come more bal­anced. With cor­rect and pro­gres­sive train­ing, you can de­velop your horse’s rhythm and bal­ance. Once these are in place, you’ll find it much eas­ier to ride school move­ments and ask for medium paces. Turn the page for ex­er­cises to get you and your horse on your way.
