  • Flat Warm-up Fundamentals - Part 1

    Ronny explains what he likes to see in the flat warm-up, which is a loose, forward horse that flows from the hind end into the rider’s soft hand. When viewed from the side, the rider should have a shoulder, hip, heel alignment. He wants to activate the hind end first before connecting with the hand.

    In the warm-up, they move on to the canter utilizing the same principles of getting the horse forward and relaxed. The time it takes to warm up a horse depends on the individual so it’s important to know your horse and what he needs.

  • Flat Warm-up Fundamentals - Part 3

    They finish the warm-up by implementing downward transitions from canter to trot to further help the horse’s hind end come under himself and the shoulder’s come up. This also helps prepare for the over fences work when horses need to listen to the rider for collecting and extending between fences.
