Rider training and position

The annual BHS conference took place today at Catherston Stud. With leading showjumping trainer Corinne Bracken demonstrating the importance of having the ball of your foot in the stirrup. If your toe is on the stirrup this pushes the toes up which blocks the pelvis. With the toe in neutral our pelvis stays relaxed and we can absorb the movement.

We were fortunate to take on board this new awareness and will hope you do too. Rider proprioception is a fundamental part of evolving from a rider to a competent rider to a professional rider

Practise and see for yourselves!
