Imagine carrying something on your back and having it shift around while you walked or ran.

It would get old pretty fast, is my guess.

The horse feels much the same when we fail to maintain a balanced position whilst riding.

My thanks to a couple of our students who helped us demonstrate the difference.

    Loved this, most informative especially for those young riders! Obviously this is on the flat. Another session, if you haven’t already considered it, might be on the ascent or descent from a hill. Enjoy the weekly posts!
