The Best Way to Dismount a Horse

It’s the end of your ride, time to hop off and head back to the barn…

But what if it’s not quite that simple? The skill of dismounting is one that is often overlooked in teaching.

It happens at the end of the ride, when practice time is essentially over. Plus it seems so simple, and it is simple, as long as it’s done correctly.

However, a poor dismount is both dangerous for the rider and uncomfortable for the horse.

I have witnessed a surprising amount of accidents happen in the dismounting process, even when the horse was standing completely still.

In today’s video, I will show you two ways to dismount safely, and demonstrate two of the most common mistakes – one that I’ve seen result in several falls.
