EXERCISES TO HELP STOP A HORSE RUSHING // SERIES
Horses usually rush into fences or even on the flat as they feel insecure, unable to understand the question asked, and at some point may have had incorrect training or the rider maybe driving them with their seat.
As a rider you need to focus on the horses rhythm and balance - rhythm being the first point of the scales of training.
Many riders take their leg off on a rushing horse but actually you need to keep them on and your body balanced to communicate with the horse and enable them to engage.
These exercises help not only in show jumping but also in the cross country.
Hope you find these exercises helpful!
