Lungeing & Long Reining

Longeing the Rider for a Perfect Seat


Longeing the Rider for a Perfect Seat, by Linda Benedik
In this country we have not given the idea of longeing the rider much of a workout, but it is customary in many stables in Europe, especially the Spanish Riding School, where the young riders spend countless hours on the longe line before they are allowed to progress to riding on their own. There is a great deal of value to the rider in being able to concentrate on position. This is a wonderfully complete manual solely on that topic that includes a number of exercises for the rider to perform. Instructors, this could really help your students!
