Week 7 Checklist of Exercises to try
Welcome to week 4, this is where we introduce riding. I hope you've found it valuable to stay on the ground the last three weeks and notice a better relationship with your horse. This will really help with the riding portion, but there are still a lot of pieces to know to help with riding.
The good news is that the 6 Calm Connection exercises you learnt on the ground also apply to riding.
Your homework for this week:
- Develop a good mount
- Transitions out on the circle or free run (to make sure your horse is ready to ride)
- Riding Calm Connection Exercises
- S Pattern
- 360 with a Twist
- Move with me and Yield
- Confidence Building Exercises
- Touch It game
- All around game
- Distractions while doing the Calm Connection Exercises
