Stabilization or relaxation? - Mary Wanless Webinar

6 Jan 2021

Stabilization or relaxation? – are you firm and still on the horse, or are you a rag doll? Do you ‘lead the dance’ or follow it? Is relaxing really the answer – or is there such a thing as ‘positive tension’? Realize that the most powerful way to change your horse is to change your riding. It’s a sad state of affairs when you always do what you always did and always get what you always got!


A series of eight 45 minute webinars. These utilize power point presentations and demonstrations of dismounted exercises, along with using a riding simulator to show both good biomechanics and common faults.

Mary explains how to best cue various corrections, and she will also use a model pelvis to explain how a little anatomy goes a long way in learning how to sit well, and how to coach good sitting.

She will use a model horse skeleton to illustrate some facets of good horse biomechanics. Her presentations will highlight ways of improving your effectiveness both as a learner and as a coach, showing how the mysteries of talent are dissolved by understanding and recognizing good rider biomechanics, and by appreciating how people learn. This clarity makes riding skills both more teachable and more learnable.
