A while ago I saw a video of myself riding at a clinic of a few years ago. This was before I had met Rien van der Schaft and started collaborating with him.
To be honest, I was a bit startled of what I saw on the video. I was riding my horse pretty round and deep and basically from the front to the back instead of the other way around.
However, if you had told me at that moment a horse should be ridden from back to front, I’m sure I would have totally agreed with you. But at the same time, I wasn’t riding my horse in that way. And I wasn’t even aware of it.
I’ve got the feeling this is a big problem. We all say we do a lot of things, but do we really do them?
The goal of #DressageProMovement is to create awareness, spread knowledge, talk to each other about it and inspire one another.
