Make Good Riding Your Habit

Correct Fundamentals help you "do the right things right".

A Safety Checklist for You and Your Horse

Always have in your mind that horses are unpredictable animals, not machines. Our familiarity can lead to taking liberties and accidents occurring.

My Top Tips: Part 4

Please enjoy these final tips. I hope they have been useful for you and your horse!

My Top Tips: Part 3

21. Good technique isn’t just about what the horse does over the jump.

22. When jumping a combination, don’t ride into it with too much pace because your horse will learn to jump flat and run on the landing. Give him time to adjust his weight onto his hocks.

23. Canter, rhythm, line. Get it right every time.

24. The better the approach the better the chance of the horse jumping…

commented on Tim Stockdale's blog post 'An Exercise for a Proper Approach'
