Are you a Tense Rider? What Causes Tension and How to Relax

Are you a tense rider? Has a riding instructor or friend ever told you to “relax”?

We all get tense sometimes when we ride, and our tension has a big impact on our horses. It may make them nervous, affect their movement, or decrease their responsiveness to our cues.

In today’s video I cover three reasons we get tense, common places where we hold that tension, and two ways we can drop the tension and ride better.

Watch the video then leave a comment, where do you get tense and what do you do to relax that tension?

See you in the comments!
