DRESSAGE - seat & position by Colleen Kelly
Audio CD: How to Improve Your DRESSAGE
How to Improve Your Dressage:
Rider Seat, Posture & Balance
Dressage can be complicated - so many peoples opinions! Learn how the FEI Rules apply on rider seat
& position & what judges look for.
Find out how riders put the horse on the forehand, or fall in on the circle, or cut corners, get too much flexion, or head tilt, jack-knife through the shoulder or cross over the hind legs.
See how with the simplest changes in rider seat & position you can have straighter center lines, long-sides, diagonals and later on straighter flying changes and piaffe. And improve straightness & balance.
Improve your confidence & co-ordination. Get rid of the comment "not enough impulsion" once and for all, and find out what it is that
Colleen and Rider Biomechanics is doing to create so many World Champions, and Olympic and Paralympic medallists!
However, like all of Colleens work, it is completely simple for even a total beginner, or for a parent who is non-horsie and wants to see what to look for and how to help their childs riding.
A great stocking-stuffer at such an inexpensive price, but it really is jam-packed with incredible information!
How This Works... Instead of waiting for DVDs to be delivered to your door (of course is significantly more expensive)...like Netflix they get downloaded automatically!
However...if you have a slow plug in card on a laptop, email us and let us know so we can send a duplicate to your work, or a friend that has a fast broadband-type landline internet connection, then they download quickly and instantly. (Great way for your friend to get a copy for free!)
