Straightness and collection

In the tenth part of the webinar series “Natural asymmetry and training for straightness”,  we discuss the topic of collection with regard to straightness.

  • How does crookedness affect the horse’s ability to collect?
  • How are tempo and rhythm related to transmission of swing?
  • How can we gently introduce the horse to the subject of collection as a continuation of the work on straightness?
  • How can we detect crookedness in collection and how can we correct it?
  • How can we recognize that we have asked for too much collection?
  • How are straightening and the development of the school gaits related to each other?

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.
