Using Driving Aids to Increase Your Horse’s Responsiveness

Todd Flettrich and Ruth Hogan-Poulsen demonstrate how driving aids can help increase your horse's responsiveness.

In this video, Ruth discusses how to increase your horse’s responsiveness by isolating the driving aids—leg, seat, voice and whip. Making your horse is both emotionally and physically moving forward is important – if you feel like he is not doing both, go back and work the aid sharpening exercise. Timing and reward are extremely important when working on responsiveness.
