Ep. 37 Rising Trot - The ‘gold dust’ skill

I have been accused of terminal rising trot  - but time invested here is so worthwhile - it’s the ‘gold dust’ skill. I offer some strategies to help your hollow back or round back, in both the rise and sit, keeping your knee in the same place and your foot back under you. Recent research has shown that it does indeed help your horse to sit with the inside hind leg, and that it’s actually his outside hind leg that works harder on a circle, not his inside one. I also offer strategies to help you not get disorganised by the ‘pingy’ or ‘stodgy’ horse.
