How to Ride a Horse in the Western Style : How to Transition a Horse from Walk to Jog Western Style


Hi, I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village
I’m going to show you some tips and techniques that I use when using transitions in the western
style riding. So now we have our horse comfortable and calmly walking around. We are sitting
square on our horse, we have heels down, we have our shoulders square. We are looking
where we want to go. We are going to bump her up to a jog. So what I’m going to do I’m
just going to get her a little bit more collective her and give her a little bump. Give her a
little cluck and just give her a little squeeze and have her go off to a jog. So again we are walking, a little cluck, a
little squeeze and we would have her go off to a jog. So we are walking, square on our
horse, shoulders in line, shoulders back looking where we want to go. A little cluck, a little
squeeze to the leg and she should very easily go into her jog. So that is how you want to
transition from the walk into the jog.

  1. It is a jog, it's just not what people really picture when they think of a jog or trot. It does in fact look almost like a quick walk, but if you watch the rhythm it's easy to tell the difference.

  2. Someone needs to take her spurs away. She is over spurring her horse. I agree with using spurs but only if you correctly know how to use them.

  3. That's the least amount of impulsion I have ever seen. Seems like there's a lot of stiffness through the back, which could make the horse appear unsound.
