Forward First When Riding Dressage with Nick Peronace

Forward First When Riding Dressage with Nick Peronace
At the bottom of the dressage pyramid we find the word rhythm, and while this can mean a lot of things it is defined as both energy and tempo. That means that having a slow tempo without energy is no more correct than an uneven tempo, and alas the reason we need to establish forward above all else when we ride dressage.

This super fan submission with Nick Peronace does a great job of simply asking for forward before asking for the horse to come on the bit, in this work patience is required but it will pay off in the long run as you put your horse together into a frame moving up the levels and essentially up the fundamental pyramid of dressage.

For those of you not familiar with the dressage pyramid the levels are: Rhythm, relaxation, connection, impulsion and straightness.

How to do Leg Yield on the Circle in Dressage

How to do Leg Yield on the Circle in Dressage
This is one of the most valuable exercises in dressage, from training level to grand prix, there are plenty of ways to use this exercise. While this exercise helps to collect and balance the horse it also helps to establish the aids and refine communication between horse and rider.

This exercise can be done at both the trot and canter, as your horse gets stronger and more supple with this exercise you can also add haunches in, shoulder in and renvers to the circle. And last, but certainly not least you can turn this exercise into your schooling for canter pirouettes. There are very few exercises that we do in dressage that are so versatile that they can be used for both a young horse and a grand prix horse, so go out and get started. This is one small step on your way to grand prix! Or at least the next level of dressage!

How to Apply the Half Halt In Transitions

How to Apply the Half Halt In Transitions
From training level to grand prix the half halt is one of the most essential tools for the dressage rider, or any rider for that matter. To be able to communicate effectively with your horse to prepare them for transitions, prepare them for the next movement, collect the gait and re balance them there are very few movements in dressage that do not engage the half halt.

In this video submission from dressage trainer Randi Thompson we look at the beginning steps of the half halt and how to teach your horse what it means. Taking the time to lay the foundation of the half halt will pay off immensely as you move up the levels with your dressage horse.

You can watch more of Randi Thompson’s videos in our Training Level and First Level Playlists. You can also find her on her own YouTube Channel
