Long Rein During Warm-up

Tuesday’s Tip!

During your warm-up, remember to spend at least 5 minutes walking your horse on a long rein so that he stretches his back. By stretching during warm-up, your horse will be more able to work softly and supplely and should be less tense.

If at any point your horse begins to tense up, then go back to walking on a long rein to relax both you and your horse.

Feel free to comment, and if you have any small problems, let me know and they may feature in next week’s Tuesday Tip!
