What makes a great Event rider

defensive position

To our students: the above picture is what we are aiming for you all when we say “wait to get in your two point over jumps” or “you need your bum further back in your saddle!”

This pic can be found and explained further in this article: Eventing Nation Article

Its a great read and will challenge your preconceptions of what jumping positions should look like and why riding in extreme weather makes you better! –as much as we, your instructors, would love not getting rained, sleeted, or snowed on we would do it for you girls because we are crazy like you girls and ride in it too!
