TALK & DEMO

1 or 2 ridden horses

This is an exciting way to experience a ‘live’ response, and reaction scenario to bitting and witness how, by often a simple change of bit can create a major change throughout the horse’s body and rider posture.

Gill will walk you through step by step her consultation method and explain what she is seeing and what she is aiming to change. Bit actions will be explained and the responses to them and why. It’s all about breaking down what the horse can accommodate, deciphering what the response is and adjusting the bit choice to suit the horse. The riders will also feel the benefit as the horse becomes more relaxed and accepting of the bit, so the rider’s position, demeanor and input also adjusts the mindset and posture of the rider.
