VIDEO: Unmounted Exercises for the Dressage Rider’s Seat

TRY THIS unmounted exercise video with biomechanics expert Susanne von Dietze!

While standing…

“Try to keep your weight equal on both legs. Keep the knees soft. And then close your eyes for a moment.

And you will feel you are not standing still. You are swaying over your feet…What looks from the outside like lots of people standing still is inside a lot, a lot of automatic movements.”

She takes us through an unmounted session where she describes the use of the rider’s seat and leads auditors (and you!) through exercises.
