    Rider Biomechanics



    Rider biomechanics is the study of the motion necessary in a rider's body so that they can stabilize themselves to move with, and then influence the horse’s movement.  The result is two bodies working together in harmony, rather than working independently of each other in opposition.  


    A rider with a strong core, who is well stabilized can deliver clear and ethical aids. The horse will mirror how the rider moves and administers aids. The horse is an extremely perceptive animal, and is made to feel the movement of the herd or different stimulus in it’s environment almost instantly. For this reason, it is vital that the human is aware of what they are thinking and doing, whether that's in the saddle or on the ground, so that they can effectively influence the horse at any given moment.  This physical control requires the human to able to control their mind first so that they can then control their body which allows them to seamlessly influence their horse.  In this short course you will learn exercises that will help you become a more stable rider, and learn how a simple weight shift can direct your horse.

    considerthehorse@gmail.com or 605-673-5002       



    *The minimum qualifications are put in place to assure that you are in the class that would be of the most benefit to you.  This also will help you set goals and be more of a leader for your horse!  You don’t need to have already officially passed with Parelli, just show one of the instructor (Farrah) your audition tape and she will let you know!

    Lunch will be available for $10.00.  Pay clinic hostess at the time of registration on clinic day. Thank you.

    High Level Dressage




    • The passage is a movement seen in upper-level dressage in which the horse performs a highly elevated and extremely powerful trot.  The passage differs from the working, medium, collected, and extended trot in that the horse raises a diagonal pair high off the ground and suspends the leg for a longer period than seen in the other trot types.
    • The piaffe is a dressage movement where the horse is in a highly collected and cadenced trot, in place or nearly in place.
    • A pirouette is a two-track lateral maneuvers asked of a horse in dressage in which the horse makes a circle with its front end around a smaller circle made by the hind end.
    But how do you even begin these maneuvers?  Many of the foundation steps can be taught on the ground.  Of course the horse will determine what he is able to do with the current amount of flexibility and strength that he has, but the human will go home with the road map of where to go from present to piaffe!!

    • The On-Line/ Liberty/ Freestyle Riding for Levels 1-3 camp.  Don’t know what level you are?  No problem, after this week you will find out, and because of that, you will know how to progress from there.
    • Playing with a horse on-line teaches the horse to follow the “feel” of the rope, which will translate to following the “feel” of the rein.  Whether you are teaching something new, reinforcing, or refining a concept to a horse of any age, playing with a horse on-line with one rein, or two improves your timing and focus.

    • Take the skills that you have learned on-line and test your communication without a rope.  Is your body language clear enough that your horse can understand your movements and gestures without a rope?  When your horse has a choice, would he choose to be with you?


    • Learn to ride with very precise aids so your horse can understand you without a bridle.  Move the different body parts in rhythm with your horse.  Teach your horse to do in his body exactly what you do in yours!  Learn to dance.  Become a more balanced, fluid rider that is connected to your core.
    • Use what your have learned with your horse out on the trail and see the beautiful Wyoming countryside.

    Level 4 and beyond!

    • If you are signing up for this course, it means that you are a confident rider ready to explore new depths in your horsemanship.  Even if you have not had any experience in the following specific topics, or if you have been studying them for many years, everyone will find new and valuable insights that will take their horsemanship to the next level.
    • Learn more about Dressage/ Cowboy Dressage.  Positioning of the rider and the horse varying by an inch forward or backward can determine a movement that can build and strengthen a horse versus a movement that can break down a horse.  This course will address the precision in a way that is guaranteed to be achievable by even a rider with no education on classical riding.
    • Teach your horse to explore the big, beautiful Wyoming landscape and use all of things you have taught him in the arena to give him confidence and obedience on the trail.
    • Go to the next level with Liberty, play with one horse, then learn how to ride and play with another horse at liberty!
    • Learn to ride bare back, or bridle-less, or both at the same time!  Develop your feel and timing so that your horse can READ YOUR MIND.
