Rider position with Ruth Poulsen and Jane Savoie

I love that this video tells you why these common exercises are useful and what they can tell you about your flexibility and position...


  1. Excellent video. Our body positions make SO much difference to how our horses go. This offers some good analysis and ideas.

  2. Position and timing are paramount in riding. Ruth mentioned keeping a consistent connection, but remembering to give on the last step of the canter important!

    I audited a Jane Savoie clinic in New Jersey, which was so small that it included lunch with her. She was absolutely approachable and professional. I have liked her ever since!

  3. Excellent! Great things to check during my next ride. Thanks for posting the video.
