Creating the Connection

Creating the Connection

The way that we ‘talk’ to horses while in the saddle is through the combination of our aids –– legs, seat, hands, and voice. In this lesson, we’re focusing on clear communication during our rides, through the use of our aids, our position, and our mental focus in the saddle. We’ll develop an understanding of the way we ‘talk’ to our horse while riding, as well as how our horse responds to us in a variety of ways –– from the way they sense our focus and moods, to the way they respond to pressure, release, and reward.
