Riding on the Bit

Riding on the Bit

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

For some equestrians it is the ultimate goal - to get your horse on the bit and experience that suppleness of poll and jaw, the engagement of the hindquarters, the acceptance of the rider’s hands, that fluid link between horse and rider.

Training the OTTB Horse

Training the OTTB Horse

VIDEO DESCRIPTION

EquestrianCoach.com member, Adult Amateur Jumper rider Stacy, reached out to us to get training help from Bernie for her off the track Thoroughbred horse, Diesel. Before the training session, Bernie familiarized himself with the duo by watching a video of them on course, determining what issues needed to be addressed. It became apparent that Stacy was having trouble maintaining an even pace on course, that Diesel avoided contact and wouldn’t use his neck over the jumps and got quite hot, occasionally bucking and evading the bit, between the fences.

Watch Brian’s journey from riding behind the vertical, out of sync with his mount, to beautifully riding with the motion of the horse. This summer Brian joined Bernie in Southern California at EquestrianCoach Ranch for an intensive workshop. He traveled all the way from Argentina for the chance to ride twice a day for seven days. This video documents his progress and stamps the merits of the American Forward Riding System. He arrived with a habit of sitting behind the vertical on his approach to the jumps.
