How to Trot Your Horse : How to Turn a Horse While Trotting


Hi, I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village,
I’m going to show you some tips and techniques that I use when I’m trotting and jogging my
horse. Now I’m going to move her up here to a trot. So when you are steering you want
to look where you want to go. You are going to pull your inside rein out and back towards
your hip a little bit. You are going to apply a little bit of outside leg pressure keeping
your shoulders nice and square. You should never have to pull really far on your reins
or be all out and crazy like that. If you shift your weight and look where you want
to go and just open your rein a little bit, your horse should really easily steer. Now
in the beginning when you are first teaching your horse how to do this, you may have to
pull a little bit harder. But more advance horse would just respond to a open rein. You
shifting your weight, your applying leg pressure and looking at the direction where you want
to go.
Same thing applies when you move up to a posting trot and you are trotting out a little bit
more. You just want to open your rein, look where you want to go and we are going to change
our diagonal. Sit 2 beats, open our hands, apply leg pressure and stay looking where
you want to go, so that is how you want to steer your horse at the trot.

  3. In my opinion she's really not doing anything wrong people, and quit talking about her weight, i've seen heavier people riding horses before. You all are very rude, and childish. And if you know how to ride a horse, than why the fuck are you looking up horse riding lessons anyways, so get a life.

  4. do any of you know a good english trotting video because i am learning it right now and i'm having a lot of trouble

  5. listen are you sure you're horse is healthy? I've never seen a horse with their head that low when they trot. And I know that this isn't considered 'cruel' by everyone but spurs? really?
