People who use draw reins (or any other device, including vienna reins and side reins) think the frame and "carriage" they achieve with them is correct. Not only is it not correct, it damaging to...
Listen to yourself and your horse. You are both talented and intelligent enough to ask why contact? Real contact comes from your back and seat, not from your hands. Your horse is lovely and...
He pulls the horse's head behind the vertical and kicks the horse with the spur each stride.
Try slow cadenced trot on a small circle with poll to the outside, withers vertical, haunches out just enough to have the inside hind step to the outside front. Do this sitting. Very light contact....
Maybe it's not the saddle. No one ever questions training technique.
If you don't like low waist, which looks best on hourglass shapes, then Pikeur Laguana is always a good fit.
This is what I use- you can also buy this brand at Costco for about the same price maybe lower. It is D-Alpha
Looks like a water skier's saddle.
Odd that he stresses transitions being so important and then she does so few of them.
Short on his right hind.

If showing gives your horse ulcers, why do you show? I would never subject my horse to something that would worry him to the point of ulcers, especially for vanity.

Like many others I have been on the endless pursuit of the perfect saddle. You name it I have owned it or demo'd it. L'Apogee is my perfect saddle! 10/10
Maybe your horse prefers that cadence. Power it up instead of going at quicker tempo.
I would sit him. Why not listen to your horse?
I would ride with Jean Luc before you change saddles. He will let you know if the pain is caused by something else and it often is. Most riding techniques set the horse up for back pain and...
This is the best (and least expensive!) Fleck whip I have found. It meets all of your specifications and comes in 2 sizes. It is very light, balanced and stiff- like a very thin fishing pole. It...
I am strictly a dressage rider and ventured over here to read discussions about AN. Before this weekend, I had never watched him ride. The reason I am so fascinated with him is he rides will most no...
Equine Pranayama I believe it is called.
Read dressage or watch some videos on Dressageclinic.com. Nothing makes me want to ride more than trying a new idea. Buy a new pair of breeches.
This is a saddle fit issue. If your saddle is balanced on your horse and you are comfortable enough to sit deeply, there shouldn't be a lot of friction between you and the saddle. I speak from...
