The horse goes where our eye takes it

When we jump a small fence, make a course, or simply ride a horse at home, we often look at the ground or at the neck and the head of the horse.

Focusing on what happens beneath us is a serious mistake. First of all because we do not allow the other senses to develop the necessary sensitivity to 'feel' the horse. Then because the horse also concentrates right where we are looking.

Thus, if we focus a lot on the water tray of the liverpool, it is very easy for the horse to stop or make a mistake because we have shifted its balance to the front.

Likewise, the great riders before a jump are already concentrated in the direction to take next. To give the horse an indication of where to turn, it is sufficient to look in that direction, as Ben Maher excellently expresses in this picture riding Explosion.
