Riding balanced and calm transitions up to the canter can be a challenge for many riders. Alice demonstrates on a young and energetic horse, ways to help a horse be prepared to make good transitions. This is not a drill for transitions but a way to feel of your horse and help him through the transition.
Alice Trindle pursues horsemanship that is a bit on the eclectic side. Born into an Eastern Oregon ranching family, her roots are in the traditions of developing a good working ranch horse. However, as the desire to study horsemanship became a passion, she has recognized the necessity of building a relationship with the horse through feel, timing, and balance that comes from an understanding of bio-mechanics. These principles are those of our Oregon horsemen such Tom and Bill Dorrance, and Dan Warnock, Sr. As Alice has discovered, they are also the principles of Classical Dressage masters such as Nuno Olivera and Bettina Drummond.
