Correct Rider Seat Position for Lateral Work with Shannon Dueck

Top international Grand Prix dressage competitor and trainer Shannon Dueck describes the ideal seat for lateral work.

Shannon explains that the first part of this ride encompasses the warm-up. It is important to check in with the horse to see how he reacts to your leg – both forward and laterally. The horse needs to move off your leg promptly to keep the rider from using too strong of an aid and getting out of balance. You should keep the seat in the desired tempo while your leg reminds the horse to stay in front of your seat.
