Riding Outside Part 2 with Paul Dietz


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 32

Taking a young horse outside of the arena for the first few rides can be intimating for many riders. In the last issue Paul demonstrated how he would prepare in the arena first and then ways to help an insecure horse gain confidence outside. In this segment, he takes the horse through some areas of tight brush and rock formations where she becomes a bit more agitated. Again, he shows how he would ride a horse through these tight spots and help her find comfort and confidence. Once she feels better he finds a little job to do, in this case moving a small group of cattle.
