    More of this please! Seeing a horse who doesn't know the basics so well, and seeing the change is really interesting.

    These horses ride like luxury sedans. My arabian rides more like a sport car. Now if only the brakes would become more reliable…

    Hi, I have an ex-racehorse that came out of racing last October. I want to make him a show jumper but I do want to make sure his flatwork is good. He moves well and responds very well to my seat (little hands/leg needed). The problem I'm having at the moment is he has a very short strided trot. Is there anything I can do to improve his trot and get him to extend?

    This really helps! I'm still working with my Hunter horse who is a very unfocused and hot headed OTTB and I've been so concerned over all the wrong things. Instead of worrying about his headset of a giraffe I have focused on his shoulders, my body and his core, and his hind and he has totally done a 360 thanks to your videos! No more fighting! He may not always willing get bring his head down but the more I discipline his hind and core the more consistent his head becomes❤️🍾 Thanks so much Natasha for the help!

    THANK YOU for making dressage riding techniques and methodology so easy to understand! I have learned more watching a handful of your videos than the hours of esoteric and vague "instruction" I've found elsewhere!!!

    Hi Natasha, my horse has a terrible problem with falling in on his left shoulder. I try to do leg yields. He turns his head away from the circle. I try to make it Bigger. He doesn't listen to my leg at all. I open the hand like on this video. It's like he just doesn't listen or tries to avoid the work. He does great going the other way,,, of course,,,. Sometimes he puts his head behind the vertical. I just had his teeth done to so i know that's not it…. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    This is exactly what I needed. I have a off the track thoroughbred whose slightly ADD and gets sooo distracted by things outside of the ring and falls in terribly especially at the canter. Thank you so very much for this video!!!!

    I'm riding a young horse and for me (I'm almost 16) it is the first time. I rode only old mare's and geldings so it is a new experience for me. The horse I ride also 'zig zag'. Sometimes I don't understand it and I want that she does what I tell her to do, but at that moment is think: she is a young horse, WE have to learn this together! The riding is going realy well and I learn so much, but there are still some things we have to learn like her back had to be activated but then she put her head up so I can't ride with her legs underneath her. so we have some things to practice!!! Love this video's so much because then I see I'm not the only one who make mistakes when I practice these things and when I watch I see what's wrong so I can change it in my own riding!!(sorry for the bad english 😉
