Good riding is all about getting out of your horse’s way

The best riders use their aids to help their horses be as brilliant as they can be. And then, these riders get out of their horses’ way.

Nick Skelton’s ride on Heracross demonstrates the beauty and simplicity of control and communication. Skelton really knows how to help his horse, and stay out of his way. So much so, that watching it leaves me thinking to myself, “I could do that course”.

Stay tuned!
