The Concept of Pressure and Release with Horses

Horsemanship, performance coach, dressage/event rider and trainer Chelsea Canedy explains the concept of pressure and release.

Chelsea explains how to use pressure and release with horses. Horses learn by the amount of the pressure that is put on them and when the release occurs. It’s not the pressure that teaches them. It’s the moment we remove the pressure that teaches them about the thing that we wanted to actually have happen.
