If you have ever taken a lesson with me then you know the emphasis I put on going through a “pre-flight” list at the beginning of each riding session.
The purpose first and foremost is to be SAFE and develop the muscle memory needed in your body to diffuse a dangerous situation. As the relationship grows, our pre-flight checks can be used to refine and enhance the communication between horse and rider.
I continue to use these yields every day on every horse and can not speak loud enough to the power in having positive yields!
