A Few Links – Pole Work, Core Exercises, CHA book, 2016 Conference Handouts

Hi folks, sorry it’s been a long time since I posted, but I’ve been busy and now we are in the middle of a family emergency. However I have these links I’ve been saving to share with you, so enjoy these for now, until I can post again!

~ This clever big Polework Exercise from the Rubber Curry Comb

~ And this clever exercise for the core – sit on wobbly chairs – from the Rubber Curry Comb

~ CHA has a new manual, Equine Professional Manual the Art of Teaching Riding! It sounds super comprehensive. Has anyone read it yet?

~ Did you know that peacock stirrup irons can weaken, bend, and even break when used with adults? Has this ever happened to you? I have noticed some start to have a more open angle.

~ I finally saw the 2016 PATH Intl conference handouts are up!

~ I love this photo critique, especially this line: “starting to ride at a very early age meant that she could not control her horse using strength at all. Instead, she had to learn to use balance and rhythm.”

Take care until next time.
