Q. How can I structure my schooling sessions to help my horse progress?
A. If you can, work with a good coach or instructor. Finding one to suit you and your horse isn't always easy so don't be afraid to have a trial lesson with more than one person. If you can't afford regular lessons have a look at the dressage tests, starting from Preliminary level and moving through Novice, Elementary and so on, so you can see what types of movements are incorporated into each level. This will help you to structure your own schooling sessions. Plus, of course, use the exercises we'll be including in our website, all of which are designed to help you and your horse progress.
