What have you been told about what to do with your leg as you ride? Maybe put your leg at the girth, wrap your leg around the horse, feel your heel against the horse…

There are many different instructions riders are given and as is true with most riding advice, many common “instructions” may be great for one rider and not for another. 

In this video, I will explain the principles of a leg position that helps keep you secure and give clear cues to your horse.

Here are a few topics we will cover in under 5 minutes: 

  • What part of your leg should you feel against the horse?
  • Should you “wrap” your leg on the horse?
  • How your leg shape and length plus your horse’s barrel size change how you feel your leg against the saddle.

  1. I always strive to do better with anything with horses. Your videos are insightful, and are helpful on every level.

  2. I will check out my knees to see that they are not blocked nor blocking and also imagine were my horse to disappear would I land on my feet

    thank you Callie I love your instructions.

  3. Hi, I’m in the balanced riding course 2.0, is there a difference in this course and that one? I didn’t want to join this class and have it be the same or pretty close to the balanced riding course.
    Thank you,
    Seresa

  4. I value these videos so much!
    The analogy of a disappearing horse with a rider landing on their feet is excellent for visualizing a correct position.
