How Acquiring Equestrian Training And Horse Back
Rider Training Knowledge Can Benefit You!
by Suzanne Garrard
Horse people spend years trying to find out information and techniques from different trainers for a few tips that help them with their horse back riding training before they 'chance' upon training that actually works for them successfully that they can instantly understand and practice the moves.
How many times do you see people practicing the same move whether general riding, dressage, western, western pleasure or cutting and they repeat the same moves over and over with no improvement 'locking' their horse into a frame and getting mediocre results.
Then they sell their horse and buy a new one and unless the horse can 'teach' the rider the 'move' the same thing happens. When an experienced trainer hops on the horse they can execute moves that you didn't know your horse was capable of - This is the SECRET- to learn and understand the required thinking and aids to ask and communicate to your horse and unite this with your correct body position that doesn't lock or stiffen their frame.
Do you see people kick and hit their horse to move it and when the horse finally moves they jerk on the reins, and pull the mouth to make the horse uncomfortable - it's no wonder that the horse doesn't want to move!
Imagine being able to dance in self carriage and never having to continually repeat exercises with your horse, which they see as undeserved punishment! And better still, having the correct riding seat and the respect from your horse so it will move forwards willingly as you lift your energy!
This is why when you have the opportunity to acquire quality training information - You should take it- Read it - Understand it- Plan it and Practice it!
How do you know when the training offered is quality equestrian and horse back riding knowledge that is easily understandable to you
A good trainer will tell you about the results they have obtained with other horses. The information that they provide will be clear and concise, being easy for you to understand as they discuss what you don't want with your horse and then what you do want! You can understand clearly how to implement the training information with your horse, with examples of improvement being discussed with so you can see how to progress to that point and when it is obtained. Training tips and a free mailing list should be available to you - so you can communicate easily.
Most importantly great equestrian training is so substantial that it caters for horse back riders and horses of all equestrian disciplines - Western, English, Western Pleasure, Cutting, Reining, Hacking etc. to give breakthroughs and advance horse and horse back rider performance. Lets say a horse won't go forwards properly, this isn't a particular problem associated with one equestrian discipline - i.e. dressage - it's a communication and respect issue that can happen to all riders in any equestrian discipline - the equestrian rider needs to understand the theory and comprehend the bodily-kinesthetic knowledge of the moves - how to apply the training and aids, and know what to expect from the horse.
These key areas of training need to be available to the horse back rider in unison allowing an advance in equestrian training and performance, good horse training will equip you in all these areas - ending frustration created from no advance in horse back riding skills - due to only part of the training information being available to the horse back rider.
