FOR LATERAL MOVEMENT DVD :
I viewed the 3 part series after taking a Pilates For Riding seminar and a few of the things I learned there were not working that well for my horse although as a whole the Pilates made me more aware of my own position. The 3 part series contained explanations on why those things did not work for me and helped me make the adjustments to my riding to produce the results I wanted.
Eleanor is a fantastic teacher and her explanation in all of the DVDs is very easy to understand.The instructions are not difficult to follow and the information is presented in such a way that the viewer can "digest" one concept before moving on to another.Practice can be done both on and off of the horse.
A lot of information is covered, and although this DVD could be utilized even if one did not view the 3 part series I feel that in order to obtain the maximum benefit that one should view the 3 part series first.
I am anxiously looking forward to the second part of Recipes For Lateral Movements.
Recipes for Lateral Movements is a very helpful DVD . It covers in detail the rider's position for circles, shoulder-in and half pass.

The Prayer Rein
The techniques that Eleanor uses was born in the concept of the Prayer Rein.
A Prayer Rein is when a horse is ridden without saddle or bridle, only a mere soft rope around their neck is the only aid to convey the riders requests to the horse. This takes finite and balanced skill of the rider core to produce advanced lateral and upper level movements of the horse. It is to this end that Eleanor produced the core"position" and described the natural response of the crush mechanism in the horse.
Morning Mabruq , a Muniqi stallion, performed for thousands of people under very stressful conditions of noise, lighting and space. His Grand Prix movements of passage, canter pirouette, were enjoyed by all, but, especially the
Piaffe (the trot in place to which Dietrich von Hopffgarten said he had the greatest of talent).
This true partnership of horse and rider developed the intricate and precise technique that Eleanor Thibodeau uses today in teaching her students the ART of POSITION. By using the riders body core , triangle of stability and applying dressage principles of horse training for all disciplines of horsebackriding, Eleanor models, gives live lesson footage and resources for you to change.
Focusing on Position for Women, she has developed a DVD and Workbook that has changed riders world wide in all disciplines: Classical Dressage, Western riding and English riding, Pleasure and Equitation.
- The horse is built the same and requires of the rider the same principles as gravity requires upon us.
- The crush mechanism in the horse provides for a foal to run at it mothers side and not run into her. It pushes upon us like a fight action when the horse is fearful or dominant.
- A horse has a definite preference to where you sit upon their back.

Horses in Eventing Shows, illustrate well, the cross training of jumping and dressage. Both are influenced by the core position, triangle of stability of the rider and the scores they produce in both tests are interrelated. See her article written on the "Position" Page
