Piggy’s P tips for suc­cess

Your Horse (UK) - - Train With Piggy -

“The se­cret to this ex­er­cise is to fo­cus on rid­ing a good curve. Keep look­ing up and ahead so you’re aim­ing for the mid­dle of each pole. Don’t al­low your horse to drift to the left or right, oth­er­wise you’ll al­ter the dis­tance to the next fence, mak­ing it ei­ther longer or shorter for your horse. Think about us­ing your out­side aids to sup­port your horse and pre­vent him fall­ing out on the curve, while your in­side leg stops your horse cut­ting in. “Keep your seat light so you can fol­low your horse’s move­ment over each bounce, al­low­ing your horse to stretch. Check you don’t get in front of the move­ment and think about keep­ing your up­per body tall through the bounces.”
