Denny Emerson joins us with the second part of his Rider Fitness series, explaining and demonstrating strategies to achieve an independent seat. The goal is to develop the strength in your core so you can harmoniously synchronize your seat with the moving back of the horse.

In this topic Bernie demonstrates all the different levels of contact with the horse’s mouth and different elevations of the horse’s head and neck that can be considered “on the bit.” He takes into consideration the horse’s conformation and willingness to acquiesce to the required pressure as well as the pit falls of trying to manufacture “on the bit” compliance.
