Test Your Balance
Can you perform the excercise of “Around the World” on your horse or pony? Before and after each lesson with kids, I ask them to do this simple trick to test their balance and agility. Here you see Jillian in the reverse postion, you simply flip your leg and turn four times around in the saddle until you are facing the front again. It is adviseable to try this on a safe quiet mount with someone at the bridle just in case the shift in balance upsets your horse.
