In the first three parts of the webinar series “Natural asymmetry and training for straightness”, we analysed our horse and found out about his asymmetry. Which consequences does the asymmetry have for how we give aids?
- Which aids are maybe more useful than others?
- Doe we need the same aids on both sides?
- How do I know that my horse needs support with and aid, and where?
- How can I help my horse with my body language on the ground?
- Am I balanced?
In part four, we discuss how the asymmetry influences the frame of aids on the ground, our primary aid (body language), our own asymmetry, and we have a look at the groundwork, longing and work in hand positions.
About the webinar series:
Understanding the natural asymmetry of the horse is essential to educating our horse correctly, so as to keep it sound and balanced until old age. Crookedness affects aids and training progress, as well as correct performance of exercises. Natural asymmetry can cause many problems such as muscle tensions, tendon problems, problems with rhythm, lameness, development of compensation muscles, and joint diseases.
Do you enjoy riding your horse to one side, but to the other, everything feels wrong? Do exercises work on one hand but are difficult to the other? Do you wish to help your horse to more straightness with your seat? Would you like to know how to balance your horse with side movements? Do you wonder if you should ride your horse forward down or not? Then join this webinar series and use this year to dive deeply into the horse’s crookedness and understanding true straightness.
