Turn on the Forehand with Wendy Murdoch

Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 13

A turn on the forehand is a forward motion; the horse moves away from the bend in his ribs and steps around the inside front leg. The inside hind leg steps underneath the body, the outside hind steps up and slightly out and the outside front leg reaches around the inside pivot foot. Watch as Wendy Murdoch takes a student rider through a progressive exercise that challenges your skill at turning on the forehand. As always, Wendy brings her considerable knowledge of riding biomechanics to the table and reminds us of the importance of staying in a balanced position throughout the maneuver.
