What is Enhanced Riding all about?
Enhanced riding is fundamentally about promoting a fresh approach to rider training with new ideas for instructors, horse riders and trainers of all ages, regardless of whether they simply want to hack or are indeed serious competitors...
The book is ideal for experienced horse owners or first timers. You do not even need to own a horse, perhaps you attend a school or ride a friends! Designed to transform rider abilities way beyond expectation, with the horses welfare and happiness always a priority. The most unique, useful and inspiring reads available within the equestrian community, Enhanced Riding is an invaluable resource and addition to any horse enthusiasts library... So many riders feel stuck in a rut, not progressing, unhappy with shouty instructors, confused by inadequate or no explanations, resistant horses not working on the bit, horses with specific ridden problems, nervous about riding or simply bored. Step inside Enhanced Riding where you can achieve all your dreams and understand how you got there!
There are three key factors incorporated into the principles surrounding Enhanced Riding:
- Horse Psychology and Communication.
Imagine you are ordered to do something in a foreign language that you simply do not understand, you then get kicked and whipped for not doing it! We have to understand why our horse is behaving in a certain way and learn to communicate sympathetically.
2. Rider Psychology. How to combat nerves in the saddle out hacking, competing or after a bad experience. Visualisation, relaxation and how to 'train' our muscles to work in isolation of each other and create a positive, enjoyable riding experience.
3. Horse and Rider physiology. Exercises and stretches that can be performed both at home and on our horses to increase fitness, flexibility, and strength for improving rider effectiveness and producing a harmonious partnership with our horse. Decreasing chance of pain and injury, preserving our bodies and our horses! Understanding and analysing our own body and posture in relation to how our horse moves.
