Question and Answer Session

with Antonio Hidalgo and Leslie Desmond

Between Coaching Sessions.

Trainers and riders will learn how to prepare a horse, of any breed or age to have the balanced maneuvers and excellent manners it should have on the lead & lunge line, and also under saddle. 

Other topics of interest include:

Teaching the horse to stand still,

to be tied,

to offer the hooves politely,

to accept the bridle and saddle,

to change posture at the standstill and while moving,

to make snooth up and downward transitions in a straight line,

to make smooth upward and downward transitions on a circle,

to back up straight,

to back up to the left,

to back up to the right,

to turn left with the hips and forehand,

to turn right with the hips and forehand,

and. to understand how to use the widely misunderstood art of true collection to advantage.

What is collection?  Once could wonder.  Leslie  will demonstrate and explain thi tserm and the way she develops it a young or older horse.

Why is so much importance assigned to this controversial posture and exercise?  

Leslie will demonstrate and explain clearly, in detail, how to make best use of true collection that is understood by the horse.

She will show you how to recognize the posture that identifies and unifies collection. She explains how to make best use of its various parts and it’s potential for ultimate benefit and clarity to the horse about the timing, placement and speed of his feet when under saddle.

No special equipment is required for this course.

Do you have a real problem with your horse?
