:::Get to know Rodrigo and his great horse HH Let's Fly while they school over Rodrigo's favorite gymnastic in preparation for the $231,000 FEI World Cup Grand Prix CSI 4* during week 9 of the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington. This topic focuses on the partnership of horse and rider and features Rodrigo's play by play of his winning round.
:::In this video, Bernie shares with you one of his favorite gymnastics designed to improve your horse's agility, front end (technique), rhythm & balance.
:::Learn to make yourself ride with a consistent rhythm, with your horse in front of your leg. Maintaining good rhythm & balance can help dramatically to improve your ride by allowing the jumps to come to you instead of unknowingly changing your rhythm in search of "the perfect distance." Trust that your horse can jump well from many distances as long as you keep this in mind.
