Dressage Solutions: To post more efficiently for forward motion…

Try this tip from Janice Dulak.

To post more efficiently for forward motion…

Imagine your body as a box with hinges at the hips.
Keep your box square as you rise freely in the posting
trot. This “squareness” (no tipping left or right) will
keep your horse’s body traveling straight and forward,
too.—Janice Dulak
