One of my students, Poppy, is currently staying with us for a while. Yesterday, we have been on the beach, with Poppy riding CC and I on Kevin the racehorse. It was a super day, great weather. Both our horses were keen to show off their talents at speed training… cross-training for dressage… Poppy also tried out the bitless bridle that Iris has introduced us to, one of the latest models from Germany we have been riding Basil (aka A’Seduction) in too. Further below is Poppy on her Basil boy Mr Tickles.
Iris has introduced us to this new model of a bitless bridle from Germany. Here she is presenting our Grand Prix Stallion A’Seduction (aka Basil) for his third time only in this bitless bridle, caught on photograph in the midst of flying changes, October 2012. She says:
It’s a beautiful experience to ride a horse in advanced movements who responds to ‘the push of a button’. You learn how the horse should feel at this level. And what is more, riding bitless focuses both horse and rider on seat and leg aids, and on the most important aim of dressage overall, that is riding truely independent of the reins. A’Seduction is a true gentleman and team player at all of this.
Sally is now offering Dressage Lessons on A’Seduction.
