HorseRidingInstructor1 1024x443 The life of a horse riding instructor


The question in this video is from Angelica Hesselius:

“Do you have a trainingscale of your own, if so, what steps does it consist of.
And how do you look upon the traditional trainingscale, from an academic point of view? Best of luck with The seminar!”

Dear Marijke,

I am getting ready to re-start my spanish gelding under saddle. He had been healing from a pasture injury. I have noticed he has a tendency to drop his back and not use it properly. I have started the shoulder-in on the rail and circle on the ground and he is doing well. His foot fall is supple and has good rhythm. What would be the best exercises to do for his back and neck. I do not want to ride him until i know he is ready for a rider’s weight. He is a very special and sensitive boy, and when i first started him he was just amazing. I don’t want to do anything too soon to lose his trust. Thank you for the generousity of your time and willingness to share.
