"Balance" is a term that is frequently used by riders, trainers, and dressage judges. It applies to all riders and all horses at all levels, and it's essential not only for your dressage competition success but also for your horse's physical well-being.
So, in this podcast episode, we look at what balance is, the reasons why balance is necessary, what causes a loss of balance, how to test your horse's balance, and what exercises you can ride to help improve your horse's balance.
(Please note: This is an updated and expanded version of our previous 'How to Improve Your Horse's Balance' and '3 Exercises to Improve Your Horse's Suppleness and Balance' episodes.)
