Dressage Solutions: To Maintain Your Balance

Try this tip from Laura Tomlinson.

To maintain your balance …

Imagine that your upper body is like a broomstick and your horse is a hand trying to balance it. If your body (the broomstick) starts to tip, your hand (horse) will automatically move underneath to keep it up. You cannot lean right and expect your horse to go left.
