If you pretty much take the winter off from riding to assume the position of your horse(s) personal slave once daylight time ends, Goodnight’s Principles of Riding DVD series may be just what you want to sharpen you up for the new year.
Julie Goodnight is a well known clinician who travels the country giving clinics and assisting people in overcoming issues with their horses as well as honing their skills. She also has a weekly program on RFD-TV. Her teaching manner is positive, clear and concise for anyone from beginner to advanced riders wanting to raise their knowledge and refinement level.
I have been riding most of my life and still find many helpful lessons in this series. One of the great things about working with horses is that it is an ongoing education. I would recommend you start with volume 1, Balance and Rhythm and move on from there. She also gives you some exercises to build strength and balance that can be done as you watch. The information in these DVDs can be used in any discipline to assist is problem solving and build the skills and confidence of both horse and rider. Take a look then go forth and prosper in your horse life!
