You know you’ve done a good job with campers when you tell them they are running out of time, need to speed things up. And they BEG you to let them finish scrubbing water buckets. Parents, reread that! Yes, you read correctly. I could not be prouder of these girls! A pleasure to take on as new students. And I think I see future show team kids there…..

Here at 20/20 we teach what is called. Balanced Seat. In scarier terms we could call it dressage. Since I love teaching beginners, I go with Balanced Seat.😉

➡️It simply means you’re sitting up straight, no arch in your back, head up looking ahead, with hips and legs hanging directly under you.

☑️The goal is for you to learn to create muscle memory so those legs stay there. They are a base of support when, not if, something unexpected happens.

☑️One of my goals as a trainer is for my students to become independent. They learn to adjust stirrup leathers from the back of the horse, and tighten the girth.

🟢Students learn how things are supposed to feel so that when it doesn’t feel that way they know to change it.
I do not desire to create riders who are always dependent on me. Your riding improves so much when you learn to ride with feel.

The Chronicle Of The Horse

In honor of what would’ve been the 2020 World Cup Finals this week and for #ThrowbackThursday, we’re revisiting the 2005 Dressage Final and Brentina and Debbie McDonald’s memorable freestyle, a compilation of 1970s hits such as the Commodores’ “Brick House” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.” Said McDonald at the time, “I also want this freestyle to be fun for the audience. And if they know a little about Brentina’s [competitive] history, I hope they can see the humor in my musical choice.”

Another question for you all....
Anyone interested in purchasing trail rides on the W & OD in Leesburg? We have easy access...

04/13/2020

In an effort to help others during our stay at home order, we at 20/20 Horsemanship are wondering....

How many of you do not own your own horse?
If you don’t own or lease, do you currently ride?

Please leave comments!

If you don’t ride, is there anything we can do to help you increase your horsey knowledge?

Are you interested in learning by watching videos? What kinds of horse related topics are you interested in learning about?

We are putting together several e-courses and would like input from riders and NON riders, owners and non owners. I for one am always learning, and love to read and watch videos to expand my knowledge.

Thank you for sharing!

We would like everyone to know that during this COVID19 crisis, 20/20 Horsemanship is open. The governor has told us that our industry is essential, in that our horses rely on us to feed and care for them daily. Some VA lawyers are stating that includes riding and exercise, to maintain the health, physical & mental well being of the animals.

My daughter and myself are the ONLY employees. We are only traveling to the barn and home. We do NOT HAVE BOARDERS. We are a very small, private riding lesson facility. When you come for a PRIVATE lesson during this time, there will be no more than 5 people at the barn. We are disinfecting tools, doorknobs and equipment etc...

This is a hard time for everyone. Being outside, getting fresh air, and exercise with a horse can offer you a much needed mental break. We invite you to continue your private lessons, or give us a shout if you’d like to begin.

Additionally, we are putting together an e-learning set of courses. We are excited to offer this and it will be free to current students. Please keep an eye open for it!

Thank you everyone.
