Happy Horse Tip #1:

Here’s a great exercise called “breathing the legs” that you can use to freshen your horse’s walk.

Try this exercise at home first. You might be surprised by the reaction you get. So you don’t want to do it for the first time at a horse show.

• Take your legs off your horse’s sides.
• Move them back an inch or two.
• Place them back on his sides lightly.
You can use it in either free walk or medium walk. You should feel a surge of power from behind.
