He's way into rider fitness and balance, as well as control. Recommends lots of no stirrup work. Says a horse should be physically and mentally prepared.
That's all I've got. I pumped him for information otherwise. Very keen man. I'd ride under him if I got the chance to.
yep same person !
That's awesome that you interviewed him, sounds like you got lots of info out of it =]
Im pretty fit and apparently he thought my position was good enough (you had to audition to get in). I will be doing some no stirrup work when I can ride again...it has been super cold and I've been super sick the last 2 weeks so I've only ridden twice =[
