Dressage

Hey everybody! I have done some dressage locally and placed but i was just wondering if there was anyone else out there that does dressage and has any tips on 20meter circles and getting your horse to bend more???

Your best bet is to find and work with a trainer.

I do have a trainer and we have worked on it and gotten better.. i was just wondering if anyone had any extra tips..
miss katie-i have been riding for about 7-8 years but i started out western and english pleasure...i started getting into dressage about 2 years ago..
yea, i understand my aids.. i sometimes have trouble leaning too far foward and giving my horse the control, like letting my shoulders drop..

well, you have to give aids with your inner shank and hinder the horse with your outer shank from dropping out its hind quarters.
take your inner hand a little bit up and give from time to time half-halts.
and donīt be stiff in your upper part of your body! turn your shoulders and your head in the direction you want to ride.

these are the aids for a correct bending.

Thank you! that's what i was asking...my trainer has explained it to me but i always get confused trying to do it all at once and usually end up getting stiff and not turning like i'm supposed to.. but thanks again!

i don't have any videos of me doing dressage...i don't really have anybody to take any of me, everyone's usually riding. but i can try to get one... it's not that i don't know what i'm doing wrong, i just wanted some tips on how to keep my head and body turned and use my aides w/o getting distracted or frustrated w/ my horse and for someone to explain it and the girl above you did it step by step....lol

well, thatīs how I was taught to bend a horse correctly and it also looks correctly. and up to now all jugdes on tournaments have said to me how good I ride circels with such a beatiful bending.

but would you be so kind to let us know of YOUR idea to bend a horse? or can you just disagree?
