DESCRIPTION OF 3 DISCS IN THE SET

The first DVD of the set:  approaches position of the rider from a different perspective, discussing horse crush mechanism
 
(natural fight response) and horse bone structure as it relates to a successful ride FOR WOMEN especially. It tells you about why a horse wants you in a very particular manner on his back and how you can improve a horses response to your aids by merely being in a better frame and how to go about doing it. 

The second DVD disc :Features demonstrations of riders correct and incorrect core and pelvic placement on behalf of the horses needs, illustrating how it impacts the stride by blocking or staying out of the way, schwung (fluid movement) and suppleness of the horse and how to get it to work for you. Shows you how the horses back works and how your body influences the horse.  You learn that the ART of riding is an ACT of everyday living and how this new awareness of your core and everyday normal body movement betters your ride even without the horse !!!  You understand how to analyze yourself and if your aids are benefiting the horses response. 

The third DVD disc talks about the aids and how the core and alignment influence the result that you want.  It refers to the hands of the rider and how the horse wants to hear from hands last in the order of communication.  It talks about where the hands need to be held, how far and the effect from the "belly" or core going into them.  The alignment of the hip, and leg of the rider in the different gaits and how better communication with the horse is established with a firm understanding by the rider on where the horse needs to feel the weight or support by the outside hand or the limitation of the leg.

Actual "raw" footage of lessons with real problem and real change for horse and rider.  This is not just footage of the "perfect ride" we understand your problems and teach you how to diagnose and solve them.

This is not just another DVD on riding, this is the solution to a position change for you that will give your horse 8 major changes:

1.  unimpeded movement WHERE YOUR BELLY (including your core) MAKES THE DIFFERENCE in all the gaits

2.  understanding the CRUSH MECHANISM by focusing on WHERE YOU NEED TO "SIT" to keep the horse connected.

3.  how you produce the correct and regular rhythm by learning about the  SPLITTING WEIGHT problem, LEANING AND LEG PLACEMENT  to AFFECT you

4. How to obtain significant straightness by UNDERSTANDING YOUR CROOKEDNESS and CHANGING IT  

We all have one favorite side  !!!!

5.  You get improved impulsion YOU LEARN TO GET OUT OF THE WAY OF HIS STIFLES AND WHERE HE BENDS and DOES NOT BEND (it might not be  like YOU   THINK  he does )

6.  BETTER TEST SCORES are obtained by learning the PLANES your SKELETON (Vertical)  and

his SKELETON (horizontal) work within

AND HOW MEN ARE BUILT DIFFERENT

7.  You learn the impact of mutual communication HOW THE HORSE LISTENS TO AIDS ( it is not to the hands first!) and WHERE THE BUTTONS ARE

8.  Using the Triangle of Stability, we help our customers to become successful through a

Core Position and How It Avoids the Crush Mechanism in the Horse as it Affects English, Western, Jumping, Eventing and Dressage training.



A horse is built without a collar bone. This often makes his job difficult in carrying his rider due to the sheer magnitude of weight his muscles must support.  A horse is heavier, by natures construction, on his front end than on his hindquarter. A rider leaning forward at any time during the ride, will be out of balance with gravity let alone his horse. Whether it is in taking a jump, executing a canter pirouette, Piaffe or just working on the flat, this leaning by the rider will result in overloading the front end of the horse even further than his natural imbalance of weight. The result will evoke a crush mechanism from the horse, which is a natural fight response ( to move into pressure) when the rider leans upon his shoulders. His communication with the rider to get off his shoulders may be a mild request (crow hop) or a very unpleasant demand (a buck or a rear) depending on the nature of the horse and how much the crush mechanism (natural) has been replaced with a learned response. This was clearly seen in the Olympics with the German rider who had trouble during the execution of the Piaffe. All to sad we don’t acknowledge the crush mechanism coming out in the horse through resistances and we just go blindly blundering on spurring him or in someway ignoring his request by our telling him to get over it. His final action becomes a demand to get off his shoulders because we are out of balance with gravity and can not hold ourselves up, making the horse pay the penalty. His only way to tell you, is to become in our minds, disobedient. A crucial position of the rider is evident in jumping through the lift off (the “rearing” position the horse must assume prior to launch) as well as the incline of the rider on the other side of the jump, where once again, gravity plays its role or perhaps “toll” if the horse becomes the leverage to keep us from falling forward in the movement up or coming down. Thus the crush mechanism comes into play if things are out of balance. All too sad, we do not recognize it .
So we ask ourselves what does it take to become a better load for our partner? First we need to examine our ability to balance with gravity using the triangle of stability as our starting point. This is the triangle formed by the riders leg when seated in the saddle. A point from knee to ankle to toe and returning to the knee The angle is changed by the length of ones stirrup, yet the vital part of this change is only correct if the foot remains underneath you at all times. Any act by the rider to place his foot ahead of this triangle results in being out of balance with gravity which is followed by immediate consequences that cause two things:
1. a pull when ever the reins are used.
2. a crush response by the horse from the imbalance.
 If the riders triangle of stability remains directly under the riders knee and weight and stays there, the rider can not pull, for no leverage is provided by the foot
Try this: place a set of reins around a post. Now act as though you are going to play “”tug of war” to gain ground by making the other party come toward you by means of pulling with your hands.
 Did you place one leg or perhaps both in front of you?
Now without allowing either toe to come forward ( they are side by side under your body weight) try to pull with the reins
Not as easy?
Testing the triangle: Standing ,with legs apart as though upon your horse, move both your toes ahead only two inches from where they were when you were at rest with your feet under you.
Did you loose your balance backwards?
A triangle of stability is just that, it provides us with the means of remaining stable with gravity for ourselves and not relying on our horse to hold us up. When the foot comes ahead in the “chair position”, (no matter how short the two inches), you will automatically pull on your horse. This excessive pressure evokes the crush mechanism in the horse and he will then root or raise his head and hollow his back or shake his head side to side trying to relieve himself of the pulling hand. In addition he will be upset with the riders location “position”, and react with the natural response of moving into pressure. This may not be what you want.
