Technique is a very important part of riding. If you have good technique it makes dressage, showjumping and cross country a lot easier.

Here are some tips for good technique :)

  • Sit up straight and tall
  • Use your voice. (it calms the horse)
  • You are the leader not the dictator
  • Keep your heels slightly down
  • Keep your head up
  • If you fall, don’t get back up on your horse unless you feel confident and you are not hurt.



Hi, this is a new site and I thought I would experiment. This blog is going to have lots of useful tips and tricks for you to improve your riding and horsemanship. We will also put up some videos and photos so you can understand what we are trying to explain to you easily.

As well as this we have a Q&A section where you can ask us questions yourself and we will answer them as soon as possible.

Now I will tell about myself. Well firstly I love horses and I always have. I live in Tasmania, Australia and I go horse riding every weekend at my riding school. My sister and I have two horses, chickens, cows, goats and a dog. We have lived most of our lives on the farm.

Anyway that is enough talking done from me. I hope you enjoy this website. :)
