Susanne von Dietze on The Rider’s Seat
Physiotherapist, trainer, author of Balance in Movement and long-time Dressage Today contributor Susanne von Dietze demonstrates and teaches the benefits of a balanced seat at Grand Prix trainer JJ Tate’s farm in Landrum, South Carolina. Susanne takes us through an unmounted session where she describes the use of the rider’s seat and leads auditors (and you!) through exercises. Next, she takes to the saddle and demonstrates her how the rider’s seat, balance and position affect the horse. Finally, we watch Susanne work with JJ and other riders on their positions.
