    It's not hard, but it can be dangerous. Follow the rules and always expect something to happen. Just like with horses. I'm in favor of learning how to use as many tools as one can get their hands...

    As you're in your two-point, practice bending at your hips and pushing your chest down to your horse's neck. Do not lay on the neck. Practice moving your hands to the positions of a short, medium,...

    I rode a horse that would kick out at grey/ white horses in the show ring. Only them. I always thought it was just him. He certainly taught me to be aware of the whole arena during a class.
