Well, of course, your horse can’t really read your mind. But there are some very subtle and elegant ways to control your body and give crystal clear aids so it’s almost like he IS reading your mind.

Jane Marshall Dillon owned, directed, and taught riding at the Junior Equitation School in Vienna, Va. from the 1950's into the 1970's, where she taught the Forward Seat.

That probably doesn’t sound like a problem except when the fulfillment house reprints, they are going to charge more for production which means that the price of the course will increase.
I just wanted to let you… Continue

People often ask me to explain the difference between "running" and "lengthenings". In fact, in this article I'm also going to describe the difference between running, lengthenings, medium gaits, and extended gaits.

2. Lengthenings- In a good lengthening, your horse… Continue
