Getting your horse on the bit – What everyone should know!
Getting your horse on the bit – And why talented riders and trainers don’t often break down into enough detail.
What everyone ought to know about Getting Your Horse ‘On The Bit’ – a new video which explains how on the bit works, and why talented riders don’t talk about it in enough detail for the rest of us!
Getting your horse on the bit can be the bugga boo of riding, causing stress and unnecessary frustration in both horse and rider. One the rider understands where to focus, and what to focus on, riding becomes a solvable puzzle rather than some mystical feel that only the talented possess.
In good work the horse’s back forms such an effective bridge that it is very comfortable to sit on, and his back end and his front end no longer feel like two separate pieces. Think of him moving in one piece underneath you, so that you feel as if you are being carried along on a conveyor belt.
