ES 3010 - Advanced Horsemanship I


This course is for the intermediate rider who is already able to walk, trot and canter in a group with good control and balance.  It includes one day of flatwork and one day of jumping each week. An introduction to classical schooling theory will give riders the skills to begin influencing the horse. Concepts of contact, bending, and improving the horse's balance will be the primary focus, with students becoming acquainted with rhythm, suppleness, impulsion, and riding the horse from leg to hand.   Riders will gain more strength and control over fences by working through grids with and without stirrups to improve position and balance. Later in the semester these concepts will be combined to enable students to ride a simple course of fences successfully.
