Mark Rashid has spent most of his adult life studying equine and human biomechanics, physiology, psychology and movement and has put those studies to practical use in his work with horses and riders.
In this DVD, Mark Rashid helps viewers understand their horse’s footfall and cadence by showing them how to determine when each individual foot is moving and where it is going. He then goes on to show how to use this movement to the rider’s advantage during training and riding.
Mark also covers a number of issues that can interfere with the movement of the feet and how to avoid interfering with the horse’s movement.
About Mark Rashid:
Mark Rashid has committed himself since youth to finding quiet but effective ways to work with horses. As seen in his eight books, Mark conveys his lessons in a practical, concrete manner – but with feel. Working around the world with a multitude of breeds and riding disciplines, he focuses on what is happening on both sides of the horse/human partnership – how the rider can clearly communicate while building trust. Mark’s instruction on communication involves always searching for the least amount of cue or pressure possible.
