I had a great afternoon with Chilworth Riding Club on their Position and Aids workshop. It was really well attended, and everyone enjoyed the rider exercises to music to get everyone moving!
The workshop included posture improvement, inter-active exercises to improve transitions and half-halts, and great fun was had by all on the contact session with everyone ‘long-reining’ each other to get the feel of what the horse actually feels from the rider’s hands- a revelation!!
A willing riding club member and her lovely horse demonstrated how the rider’s position and aids affect the horse.
A lively question and answer session where riders asked specific questions about their own horses went down a wow, and riders went home brimming with new ideas and a fresh approach to training at home.
A big Thank You to Susie for organising the event!
