MOST RIDERS DON’T RIDE WITH THE CONTACT REIN
Riding with the contact rein is an extremely important aspect of the training of your horse. However, I believe a lot of riders aren’t aware of this, because from the beginning too much emphasis is put on the frame of the horse, on the head-neck position.
In this video, which is part of the online program, I explain what I mean with the contact rein, why it’s so important and why it solves most of the problems a rider can have with the connection.
