Feb 2017 - aids/learning "feel"
Many say it can't be taught but Heather Moffett proves you can learn that elusive "feel". This is the starting point, covering feeling the hindlegs coming under, when a hindleg is striking on the ground, when the shoulder is going forward or coming back, without looking down, so that you can feel diagonals.
This month Heather also describes aids that are clear to the horse and invisible to the onlooker. If using your aids correctly, the horse will feel them but they will be discrete, without excessive rider movement.
