Instructor's Pic of the Week

This week's pic features Sydney Gee riding the lovely welsh/quarter horse cross mare Viva on a trail ride at Valley View Equestrian.

Sydney is showing a great defensive position for the trail. Since Viva is green (inexperienced), Sydney is using a defensive position in case Viva spooks or tries to misbehave. While staying relaxed herself, her position won't be thrown off-balance if something were to happen because she has her heels down, shoulders back, and reins short. Another thing Sydney is doing right is keeping Viva in a nice forward walk. If your horse is hesitant about something on the trail, a great thing you can do is give them confidence with your legs like Sydney is doing here.

I love that Sydney is smiling and having fun. Trail rides should be relaxing and fun for yourself and your horse; a way to get out of the monotony of the arena and refresh your minds. Looks like fun to me!
