Michel Robert: position, horse and course

There are three priorities to which we must pay attention: our position in the saddle, the horse and the course.

1) The position. We must be aware of our position in the saddle at all times. This allows us to correct ourselves and return immediately to the correct position. Only if we are in balance and manage the aids independently can we make the correct requests to the horse.

2) The horse. We have to make simple requests to the horse and reward him every time he answers correctly. The best reward, as well as a caress, is the cessation of all the requests. We have to learn and recognize his body language. The sequence is request, response, release and request again.

3) The course. Where to go and how to go is also essential in simple home exercises and even in flat work. We must always be focused, not just when we are jumping. Let's get used to being connected and to define our goals.
