Fundamental Gymnastic - Helping Horse and Rider with Balance

This video demonstrates the use of a gymnastic line to help horse and rider develop balance. This can be very useful to help strengthen areas of weakness in both horse and rider. The degree of difficulty can range from beginner horse or rider through advanced, depending on fence height and distance between the jumps. A good "set of eyes" on the ground is also very important.

Riding Your Rhythm

Learn to make yourself ride with a consistent rhythm, with your horse in front of your leg. Maintaining good rhythm and balance can help dramatically to improve your ride by allowing the jumps to come to you instead of unknowingly changing your rhythm in search of "the perfect distance.” Trust that your horse can jump well from many distances as long as you keep this in mind.
