Conquering Bad Habits - Riding Behind the Vertical
Bernie Traurig

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. He had convinced himself that this allowed him more time to find a distance, but it really only served to interfere with the horse’s ability to jump and created various other complications on course.
