Riding Tip of the Week
 By Hypnotic Equus   •   24th Oct 2009   •   2,127 views   •   8 comments
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.

This is a awsome tip!! My mums horse tenses up if you are nevous, but as soon as you relax, he relax's and he doesnt play up as much and he moves better.
