This audio lesson begins by exploring the concept of opening up the body with simple exercises on the ground. These exercises free tension and help the rider to appreciate the upward (core) support of the back and abdomen in order to achieve a balanced position. Once accomplished, the rider's weight may flow freely and centrally downward via gravity, uniting the rider with the horse.The feeling is encouraged furing the warm-up so the rider remains in good balance to free the horse's back. The main portion of the lessons deals with the school figures, to emphasize the importance of stretching, suppling, and bending; transferring weight to the haunches; lightening the trot; and promoting overall engagement of the horse in all gaits. The tape provides a very good workout against a supportive musical program for any horse and rider working at any level. A refreshing way of introducing a more thinking approach to general schooling.
