Riding Tip of the Week

Well here we go. Riding tip of the Week #1. Every other week I'll try to alternate between groundwork and riding skills.

Breath easy. Breathing affects everything, from your back to your seat. Try to breathe regularly to a rhythm. This helps relax you and also relaxes your horse, because he/she feels it if your tense, and rapid, random breathing or holding your breath will create tension. Exhale longer than you inhale, as it is more relaxing.

Join us next week for some tips on groundwork. I hope this helps your riding. But most of all: be safe, Hypno.
