Exercise Bank

A mass of exercises for you to try with your horse. Each exercise has written explanations, diagrams and problem fixers too.

Impulsion & Contact

These training sessions are solely based around creating a horse that takes you forward, is elastic and even in the contact, reacts responsively to your aids, listens to your half halt and is engaged and active in the hindleg.

Suppleness & Straightness

These exercises all involve improving your horses lateral and longitudinal suppleness as well as exercises to improve your horses straightness. There are also exercises that will help you teach your horses lateral movements like leg yield, shoulder in and counter canter. 


Test Riding & Position

These exercises are a little different. They focus on a specific part of a test or past of your position and help you improve it to improve your effectiveness as a rider and boost your scores.
