A fantastic day teaching wonderful clients. We started with advanced jumping using Dizzy then I taught some slow bio mechanics work correcting position. Pip taught a client how to balance in rising trot. We then had another slower lesson followed by some lovely ladies improving their seat in canter by riding no stirrups. Finally a fantastic jump lesson for a client who has not jumped for many years.
What a day! I love my job!
If you would like to take up riding either after a break or as a beginner and you are free on a Wednesday please give us a call as we still have spaces available. It’s a quiet and relaxed atmosphere
Quick Tip for the Rising Trot: Learn How to Distribute Weight to Your Thigh
Begin the exercise starting at a stand still and work up to walk and trot as you feel comfortable.
Using the standing exercise pictured, rest into the position and feel the weight on your thighs and also a weight in the heel (without pushing it down). From that position, sit in the saddle keeping your leg underneath you.
This exercise will help you feel the idea of having weight on your thigh, not only in the stirrup!
I learned this exercise from Angelo Telatin and use it often! Watch Friday’s video to learn why this concept is so important for rising trot!
