Training Buzz: Calm Your Riding Nerves

Grand Prix trainer Jackie Kinney works with an amateur rider who gets nervous.

This week’s Training Buzz is sponsored by Purina. Grand Prix trainer Jackie Kinney works with an amateur rider who gets nervous. She is riding a large, older FEI-level schoolmaster. They start with breathing exercises and the feet out of the stirrups in order to focus on feeling the horse’s motion. Breathing with the horse’s movement can help both horse and rider relax.
