About this video

American posture coach Peggy Cummings helps Liz transfer the ground work with Dollar (in a previous video) to ridden work. Dollar's default way of going is with her neck up and tight and with little awareness of her front feet. First, Peggy says "never get on a horse if their head is in the air". So before Liz mounts up, Peggy softens Dollar's neck and she responds by relaxing and lowering it. In walk, Liz rotates her upper body left and right to encourage bend and softness and, in trot, she must keep her seat bones still, loosen her knees and gently move her thighs up and down in line with the movement. As a result, Dollar takes bigger steps and moves more freely.

bigbirdlucy 20 Apr 2017 Really interesting and useful.
katherine 6 Mar 2017 Look forward to meeting you at Peggy's May Clinic. She is an inspirational teacher and is a gift to horses and riders. We are fortunate to be able to study with her. We are also incredibly lucky that Horse Hero was able to create this marvelous video (especially because filming conditions were so difficult that day). Thank you! Great work.
Amme 2 Jan 2017 Can't wait to spend three days in May riding on one of Peggy's courses, I think she's amazing.
