03. Riding

  • How to position your feet and reigns: Push your heels down and hold your reins at the area between the front of the saddle and the beginning of the neck. 
  • How to get your horse moving: Hold your reins firmly and make a clicking sound or smooching sound with your mouth or kick the horse, not hard but good enough to make them start walking.
  • How to stop: To stop you pull back on your reins and try to calm them down.
  • How to turn: To turn you pull on your reigns left or right. Practice turning while moving.
