In the seventh part of the webinar series “Natural asymmetry and training for straightness” everything revolves around the topic of side movements. Side movements are the heart of dressage work.
- How can we use the side movements to help our horse achieve more balance, suppleness and shape?
- What are the pitfalls and how can we avoid them?
- Should we only train certain side movements with our horse, depending on his natural crookedness?
- How do we know that a side movement is done correctly and when it does more harm than good?
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.
