Dressage at Home with Lainey Ashker

We love four-star eventer Lainey Ashker’s Grid of the Day series which features jumping exercises she sets up to practice at home. For #GOTD, Lainey shares a drawing of the set up, explains how the grid will benefit you and your horse, and shows us how it’s done by riding through the exercise herself.

Love #GOTD? You’ll love Lainey’s new training video! If you’ve ever watched in awe at a professional rider’s ability to produce an elegant, accurate, effortless dressage test and wondered how they achieved such harmony with their horse, now it your chance to watch and learn.

In this video, Lainey narrates her daily flatwork routine with her rising star, the talented 8-year-old OTTB Call Him Paddy, who is currently competing at the Preliminary/one-star level. But she doesn’t just show the most beautiful moments, she also talks through their mistakes and how they were able to navigate through them.

Lainey said she hopes that viewers might be able to identify problems they are having with their own horses and gain some insight into how to work through it. If you love this video, let her know! Follow #LAE on IG and subscribe to her YouTube channel.
