Rider Overview and Adjustments with Wendy Murdoch


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 9

In this segment with Wendy Murdoch, a student rider receives an overall assessment based on the subjects covered in previous issues of the Horseman’s Gazette. These include the proper positioning of the hips, feet, head, neck and shoulders. Once again Wendy reviews the biomechanics in each area and with only a few small corrections, the rider finds herself much more stable and comfortable in the saddle. She even reported that the back pain that is usually associated with her riding disappeared. Her horse responded by lengthening and softening his stride, moving with much greater ease. Together they are able to accomplish familiar manoeuvers in new ways.

The original length of this clip is 26 minutes 21 seconds
