I've got a new video for you today but I will keep the description short as we are in the middle of “Adult Camp” here at my farm! I did want to take a moment and thank you for all the awesome comments on the last post about “heels down.” Our community is growing to include so many awesome people who have great comments, ideas, and input – adding so much value to the subjects we discuss here. Thank you!
Steering is a fundamental part of riding and I have heard the mechanics of turning a horse explained many different ways – today I would like to keep it simple and share just three strategies that I find fundamental to steering in a way that maintains balance, allows for consistent cues, and helps a rider stay stable and in control when necessary.
Hit play to watch the video, then I will see you in the comments!
