The following programmes have impulsion or emotional fitness benefits for you, your horse or both. Some are for lengthening short horses, i.e. give them a bit more go; some are for shortening long horses, i.e. slow them down. Some are for both.

Riding with two sticks affords you the perfect opportunity to isolate your rein positions and find out what’s working and what isn’t. The term ‘rein position’ can be misleading as each of these is more about getting your body position and dynamics right than it is about what the reins are actually doing.

In a previous article we discussed impulsion in horses; some being long and impulsive, some being short and lacking impulsion. When looking at the temperament of the horse, it’s also important to look at the spirit of the horse, particularly if it is being chosen for a particular sport or rider’s ability.

What is Green? Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘green on green makes black and blue’? The term ‘green’ by description, suggests growth or growing, in other words something still under construction and not yet finished. In horsemanship terms ‘ green’ can refer to horse or human and while it has a similar meaning it also has two very different time frames.

Everyday we perform certain actions repeatedly, until they become second nature or involuntary to us. Actions like walking, picking things up, using a knife, fork or tooth brush become everyday habits that we take for granted. However, that was not always so.

Horses have survived and thrived on this planet, evolving for millions of years, proving that not only do they have vastly developed survival instincts but also that they are a highly evolved species in terms of breeding, socialising, conditioning and environmentally.

By now, at the very end of Level 3, you are probably feeling that you are finally getting a handle of Level 1. And of course, you are right. Often, it’s only when we have seen the whole picture and process that we really understand the beginning and where it all commenced.
