New Video-I1/S Level, this horse ducks behind the bit and bucks into many of his canter transitions. The focus is on relieving the tension and getting the horse confident to use himself and his body for balance, trusting his rider. You can see in this video how the patience, repetition and lightness really pays off.

New Video-2nd/I Level, this horse starts off very high in the neck and doesn't move from behind or bend well. Work is done on creating a better poll position, through use of the inside leg, which allows the horse to move better. Some discussion throughout on proper equitation and its effect on the horse.

Past April Release Videos

Jody Harstone-NZ

Jody, shortlisted for Athens Olympics on Landioso and the 2010 WEG qualified rider for Dressage representing New Zealand, Jody teaches and lectures worldwide emphasizing her training based on scientific principles of behavioural theory. "The rider's aids are all trained systematically and one at a time," Hartstone explained. "One should be careful not to apply two cues at once and ensure that the pressure-release aids (reins or legs) are trained effectively before one moves on to subtle aids like the seat. Basically reins are there to slow down, legs to go, reins to turn and leg for yield. Most important is to train the legs of the horse before training its frame. It is very different from what we see in many training yards where horses are sent to. With them rein pressure and reins are no longer effective to slow down the horses' leg. Paramount is self carriage. The horses are taught from breaking in to hold their own rhythm, direction and outline."

New Video-This horse sticks his nose up and out, especially during transitions. Jody teaches the rider that when he puts his nose up and leans on the bit or the "brake", then you have to teach him what the brake or bit pressure means. This in-depth segment shows you the arduous process of "re-teaching".

Additionally, work is done on the turn aids or rein aids to re-teach the horse what this means and enforce what the appropriate response is.
