Better Horseback Riding When You’re Not a Youngster Anymore
Summary of the Horseback Riding Video:
– – Howdy friends, my name is Paul Sherland with saddleupagain.com and I’m going to be talking a little bit about what I mean by better horseback riding on saddleupagain.com or riding better when you’re not a youngster anymore.
As I’ve said before, when I was younger, I rode a variety of horses in a variety of locales, doing a variety of things. And, if I came off a horse, I didn’t get hurt. And, I just was able to get back on the horse and get goin’ again. And I didn’t come off very frequently.
Some horses bucked with me, they weren’t able to throw me. Some horses shied, they weren’t able to throw me. That’s changed as I’ve gotten older.
I’ve found that it’s a lot easier for a horse to get rid of me than it was when I was younger. And, so, I need to work more on riding better so, it’s harder, once again, to fall off the horse. And I need to work on fitness, again, so it’s harder to fall off the horse. And that’s what I mean by riding better when you’re not a youngster anymore.
We’ll be workin’ on rider fitness for better horseback riding. We’ll be workin’ on balance for better horseback riding. We’ll be workin’ on rider position for better horseback riding. We’ll be workin’ on the aids for the different gaits.
It’s been a while since I took those horseback riding lessons. I’ve forgotten some of those aids, and I’ll review them on this website.
I hope you’ll participate. I hope you’ll give me feedback and I look forward to your feedback, your suggestions and your experiences. I hope you’ll share ’em. Thank you very much.
We’ll also be talking about better horse care and better horse training. Please send us your comments and suggestions using our contact form. Visit our Saddle Up Again Blog for the latest information.
