How is your relationship with your horse before you ride? This lesson is all about creating strong horse-rider partnerships. Tracy Wagner’s students demonstrate in-hand exercises, a fantastic way to engage a horse’s attention and determine what the ride will be like. Does this horse prefer one direction over another? If so, which one is it? Will this horse need more leg? Does the horse respect you? Is the horse sound? Warming up with Tracy Wagner’s in-hand exercises will enable the rider (hunt seat, dressage and western) to take a closer look at the horse and “take the mystery out of the ride”. These exercises will help you get to know your horse partner every time you ride.
