For your horse to progress through the levels of dressage training, it is essential that he is ‘in front of your leg’ and working forwards into the bridle.
Unfortunately, when some riders apply their leg aids, their horses mistakenly increase their tempo and move their legs faster.
So, in this podcast episode, we will cover the difference between speed and impulsion, why your horse speeds up, and how you can encourage your horse to work more forwards without getting faster.
(Please note: This is an updated and expanded version of our previous 'How to Encourage Your Horse to be More Forward, But Not Faster' episode)
