Way of Going
Creating still and even hands
Does your horse feel too light in the contact; does your horse struggle to take the contact and instead becomes tight or tense; or do they sometimes go behind the vertical? In this training session we are starting with your position. We look at how to have still and even hands and the huge benefits this can have for your horses contact.

Perfecting Your Centre Lines
Our first test riding training session needed to be on centre lines! They are always the start and end of the test and are both the first and last impression the judge has of you. So lets make them great! In this session we break down the centre line and teach you everything you need for a perfect centre line!
