Oct 2016 - seat and position
At the start of this series, Heather Moffett shows the correct classical position and how it helps both yourself and your horse. The videos also cover the importance of saddle fit and balance and how they affect the horse's way of going.
Dismounted workshop video: take the guesswork out of learning to ride a horse - practise and "rewire" your brain before you even get on the horse.
Case study video: assessing a rider on the lunge and quickly correcting long standing faults. Sarah has schooled and competed her own horse to advanced medium level dressage, but felt that her riding still needed some polishing, so put herself forwards as a working student for five weeks this summer. The film was taken on Heather's phone so apologies for less quality, but it still shows the rapid improvement possible with a little bit of thought, ‘outside the box’!
