Stop, Go, Turn Book by Claire Lilley
PERFECTING THE BASICS OF RIDING
Whatever level you ride at, and whichever discipline you enjoy, it is so important to make sure your basic riding technique is correct in order to get the very best from your horse.
This book will give you a greater insight as to how three aspects of riding, Stop, Go and Turn, are used both separately and inter-linked to enable you to establish a correct training regime, whether you are starting a young horse, or re-training an older individual.
Each section includes a chapter on common mistakes, and ridden exercises to try.
Improving the Basics is all about perfecting your technique over time- there is no ‘quick fix’; it takes months or even years to develop together with your horse as a team, whether you are a novice rider just starting out, or an advanced rider wanting to improve.
The outcome of being able to Stop, Go and Turn with ease is a horse that is well balanced, attentive to the rider’s aids and able to work ‘through his back’ this can only be achieved under a rider with a correct position and clear aids; clear aids create a confident horse- and a happy rider!
