Lateral Work - What For? A Demonstration 23rd June & 21st July 11am-2pm. Higher Langdon, North Bovey.
A lateral work program should be something we all include in our horse’s training schedule - it is not something reserved for the ‘elite’. A nice shoulder in will help you to open a gate with grace!
However, for lateral work to be useful you need to understand what your individual horse requires to help him develop flexibility, better balance and posture. With a bit of time and study YOU can work out which lateral movements are most useful to your horse, how they should be executed and how to best explain that. Not all horses are the same, and that’s where it gets interesting...
Join me, my horses and a student and her lovely steed for a day of fun, clear, useful explanations and demonstrations of what the actual purpose of lateral work is, and how to ride it with ease. Booking essential. £15 per person.
I can help with most issues of riding and horsemanship, and enjoy giving people the skills and knowledge they need to become their horse’s best teacher. I believe anyone has the ability to become a great horse-person, and teach in a way which is accessible to everyone.
"What a fella needs to be aware of is that horsemanship through feel is handed down from one friend to another. It isn't for sale, no it isn't for sale. And I'd rather think that any fella, before he gets too far along on the training end of things where horses are concerned, should know about this from the start." Bill Dorrance, True Horsemanship Through Feel.
I hope you enjoy this site.
