Restrictions can aid our learning. A restriction limits options, making it easier to find the best choice.
We do this for our horses when we set up our training environment so they can successfully do what we are asking. For example, placing poles along the side of a jumping grid to correct a horse that is drifting to one side through the grid.
We can also use restrictions to improve our own riding through exercises that help us feel an aligned position and better movement.
Then, I have a simple exercise that will help you have softer hands and clear rein aids for your horse.
This will improve the position and movement of your arms and your ability to ride from your seat, especially through turns.
