  • Ride into Contact - Part 3

    Ashley sets up an exercise of jumping on a turn to encourage the rider to immediately get the horse to land and recover and be ready for the next jump. Going off the left they first go vertical to oxer, and then off the right oxer to vertical.

    The next step in this planned warm up is to connect a few fences while riding him forward into the contact. Once his hindquarters are responsive to her leg and they are going forward to the fences, Ashley raises the fences in preparation for riding a course.

  • Ride into Contact - Part 5

    In the final part of this lesson with 5-star event rider Ashley Johnson, the preliminary level rider goes through the course twice, concentrating on riding forward out of the turns to keep the power the horse needs to jump successfully.
