Forward Riding Series Part 5 - Stretches to Help the Beginning Rider Achieve Proper Position on a Horse


Part 5 of Susan Deal's "Forward Riding Series - Exercises for a Rider's First Year"

In this 5th video lesson, Susan Deal (ANRC Level 5 Rider, National Judge, and Steward) introduces some stretching exercises to a new rider in order to encourage proper position in the tack. She covers exercises to correct a rider's placement in the saddle and stretching techniques to perfect position both at a standstill and on a lunge line. These exercises will help equestrians of all levels to be more flexible with the horse, move with the horse and feel the horse during the ride. Susan ends with an exercise for relaxation and flexion to release the tension and allow beginners to more easily move with the rhythm of the horse.

Running Time: 12 minutes and 56 seconds
