Monday Video: Dressage on the Trail

As eventers, we have a pretty good understanding of the value of cross training. We also recognize the benefits of spending some time outside of the arena on a nice hack — it can do wonders for our horses’ fitness and wellbeing, after all.

While a relaxing amble on the buckle has loads of value in itself, switching things up and working a little dressage practice into your trail rides can be beneficial as well. In this video, dressage rider Amelia Newcomb offers us no less than three exercises that can be easily incorporated into your trail rides — just in time for prime winter hacking season!
