Aids as an Asset
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)
A is for Aids.
Looking forward to the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair this month and a huge stable of expert equestrian clinicians, it seems fitting to start the A to Z Challenge with a super discussion of aids.
Well-used aids are the equestrian’s best friend (except for his horse, of course).
This instructional video by Olympic and World Equestrian Games dressage star Steffen Peters outlines equestrian aids quite nicely.
Watch for more insights from Steffen Peters (if I have an opportunity to meet with him again this year at the expo) and other experts later in the month.
Spring is here. Happy riding!
