    Getting back in the saddle

    At my barn there is a girl, just out of high school, who used to ride like two years ago and is having a hard time getting back into it. She is getting lessons but still finding herself shaky at the trot and canter, her balance isn't that great and her hand position could use work. Any ideas for fun (or not) exercises and stuff for her to work on these things?

    Thanks in advance

    I would suggest some nice relaxed rides out on the trail. Just more time in the saddle is the best way to get more comfortable.

    I suggest the trainer getting her on a lunge line and her tying up her reins and balencing arms up to the side until she feels good in each gait.
