Piggy’s tips for suc­cess

Your Horse (UK) - - Train With Piggy -

“Whether you’re ask­ing your horse to lengthen or shorten, he should re­main in self-car­riage in a reg­u­lar and rhyth­mi­cal can­ter be­tween the poles. When length­en­ing, check you don’t let the can­ter get longer and longer, this will un­bal­ance him. Keep him be­tween your hand and leg so he can re­main in bal­ance. “When short­en­ing, use your legs to gen­er­ate a pow­er­ful can­ter. If you use too much hand, you’ll lose the qual­ity of your can­ter. “Your po­si­tion has an in­flu­ence on the can­ter you get. If you’re ask­ing for a more for­ward can­ter, your po­si­tion can be more like your cross-coun­try po­si­tion. When you’re short­en­ing, stay in an up­right po­si­tion. Strug­gling to main­tain bal­ance? Slip your fin­gers into your neck strap, then you’re not us­ing his mouth to bal­ance.”
