100 School Exercises for Teaching Riding by Claire Lilley

100 SCHOOL EXERCISES FOR TEACHING RIDING

CLAIRE LILLEY
In this book, you will find exercises for all levels of horse and rider, from novice level to advanced, in both dressage and jumping, including the use of props in training. The author shows how exercises can be combined to create the optimum learning experience for rider and horse, both from a teaching perspective and for solo training – a ‘teacher in a book’. Claire Lilley draws on her may years of experience as a riding coach, with insight from being a student in her formative years. She explains exercises from the teacher’s perspective: what to look for, and key teaching points to consider.
The last section of exercises is for development as a teacher, inviting the riding teacher to evaluate their own skills so as to to improve their coaching methods. Suggestions are given to improve coaching methods, such as observational skills of the physical and mental capacities of both horse and rider. Finally, training plans are given, using the exercises in practice, with consideration as to whether lessons are individual, shared or group, as well as lesson location. This book will be a valuable resource for riding instructors and pupils alike, a welcome addition to the teacher’s library.

All three parts to this webinar, Stop, Go and Turn, are vital for a dressage test or a show jumping course, for example, and to enable you to produce imaginative schooling sessions :

 

STOP  examines the application of the halt and half halt, and the effect of the horse ‘taking weight behind’.

GO  works in conjunction with stop aids in transitions, and regulating tempo and rhythm. It explores forwardness and lengthening the horse’s strides.

TURN takes a detailed look flexion and bend, and positioning the horse for circles and lateral work.
