Training Buzz: Gareth Hughes Talks Rider Position

This week’s Training Buzz is sponsored by Purina. We hear from international dressage competitor Gareth Hughes who talks about the correct body position for dressage. He begins by discussing the saddle choices and goes on to talk about the alignment of the body, legs and arms. He then has the rider begin at the walk on her pony while he talks about the aids available to the rider and what influence on the horse they should achieve.

Members of Dressage Today OnDemand can watch the full video here.
