Getting my body to do what I want it to do was helped by changing focus from my horse to me.
Sometimes, to get the result from the horse we end up contorting ourselves and tensing up because we’re just not getting it!
If you focus only on what you want your body to do, no matter what your horse does underneath you, I promise the result from the horse will come! Sounds mad? Stop caring about how the horse is going, concentrate on your riding and the improvement in the horse’s way of going will follow.
Pretend all your fellow equestrians have their eyes on you. What do you feel your body doing? What would they say? Look inwards and seriously – just do one session without worrying about the horse and see what happens.
