USE YOUR GEARS

Your Horse (UK) - - Better Riding -

So­phie likes to teach her clients and their horses how to achieve rhythm by fo­cus­ing on chang­ing gears. Within th­ese gears you should be count­ing the strides out loud, so you feel when you need to step it up a gear and make a tran­si­tion. So­phie’s gears are as fol­lows: GEAR 1: Jog GEAR 2: Col­lected trot GEAR 3: Work­ing trot GEAR 4: Length­ened strides

It takes lots of prac­tice be­fore your horse can progress through the gears eas­ily, but the key is pa­tience. You’ll find more gears in time, and be able to skip some within tran­si­tions, as his abil­ity im­proves.
