A Few Links

Here are a few links I’ve been wanting to share…

~ What’s the next step to teach after learning the basics? Probably riding leg to hand.

~ How do you teach sitting the trot? Here is some great insight.

~ Also from Dressage Today, a great explanation on how to Cultivate a Good Seat and correct posture.

~ While we’re talking dressage, here’s a nice article about on the bit which you might use for ideas for explaining it to your more advanced students.

~ If you’re a visual/auditory learner, then EquestrianCoach might be for you. I admit I haven’t tried it out, but it sounds like a great place to pick up the how/what/why information if you like watching videos better than reading articles!
