Dressage Today OnDemand is pleased to present a new video series on riding in balance from USDF-Certified Instructor Beth Baumert. She explains that when your horse is balanced, he can have a relaxed rhythm. From this state, his movements become easier, his gaits improve and he becomes more beautiful and mentally relaxed. This two-part series includes exercises to help you improve your horse’s balance, both longitudinally and laterally.
Beth Baumert is a Certified Trainer and Instructor with the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) and is an “L” graduate with distinction of the USDF judging program. Beth was the initial editor for Dressage Today magazine in 1994 and served as its technical editor nearly 25 years. She is the author of two books, When Two Spines Align: Dressage Dynamics and How Two Minds Meet: The Mental Dynamics of Dressage.
“The purpose of this video series is to get dressage riders on a path in their riding they feel confident about,” says Stephanie Ruff, Content Manager for Dressage Today. “Beth helps riders figure out why their horses may be out of balance and offers concrete exercises about how to fix those issues. Our video editor says she had an ‘ah-ha’ moment when watching the section in Part 2 about the half-halt—finally a straightforward definition of a sometimes difficult-to-grasp concept.”
