Al­li­son Brock: To es­tab­lish cor­rect con­tact with a fol­low­ing arm...

Dressage Today - - Content -

Imag­ine that you cut the bri­dle off, but the reins re­main: Your arms should con­tinue to fol­low the horse’s mouth to keep the bit po­si­tioned cor­rectly. You don’t want to hold the bit tightly in your horse’s mouth nor do you want to let it fall out. —Al­li­son Brock
