2011 FEI Dressage World Cup Final competitor Shawna Harding explains that riders who break 70% are ones who develop better quality and take calculated risks they have built into their training program at home.

In this issue, Harding:

  • stresses that riders must confirm that they are able to ride each movement of their test in a basic gait in a correct way before increasing the expression and the quality of the gait.
  • explains that pushing too much too soon and overfacing the horse usually leads to negative experiences in the ring with lower test scores.
  • shares exercises that systematically improve dressage scores.

PLUS, professionals answer common winter horse-care questions and give advice on how to weather the season.
