Tips for Better Breathing While Riding Horses

Two weeks ago I posted an article titled “Less is More,” where I shared what I had taken away from several recent learning experiences.

What I heard over and over during the lectures and clinics I attended was the importance of breathing, and of breathing correctly.

Correct breathing is essential to good riding. It affects our balance in the saddle, our ability to move with the horse, and our mental state. In this video, I share a key strategy for breathing better and an easy exercise you can try the next time you ride.
