Whatever Your Mount, Flat Work Counts ~ This article is a boot camp for beginners riding anything equus on how to walk the walk and talk horse talk. Topics covered include how to overcome the ‘push and pull’ factor, respond to the instructor’s requests and take responsibility for your equine when in and out of the saddle.
Global Edits For Your Dressage Riding ~ This feature focuses on common rider errors that crop up during schooling and competition. Based on her career experiences both as a competitor and clinician, Nikki Alvin-Smith suggests global edits that a rider can make to step up their level of progress.
Iberian Breeds Bring Special Training Needs ~ For many dressage riders the switch from owning and training warmbloods to training Lusitanos and Andalusians has become a reality. These breeds require a different approach to training in order to avoid common issues with ‘breaks’ at the 3rd vertebra, confined cadence and hollow collection. Hacks to make the training transition smoothly and with confidence.
“During my career I have been blessed to work with some true masters of dressage both here and abroad. Together with my husband Paul, who is also a Grand Prix trainer, I travel worldwide to share the knowledge accumulated with others. The horse comes 1st, 2nd and 3rd and the ribbons come later. It is always about putting the horse first and understanding the challenges each individual equine faces. There is so much more to learn of course and we both continue our education on a daily basis. I am a firm believer in the more you know the better off the horse will be ~ mental and physical health are so connected.”
