Taking the handbrake off

Taking the hand break off

In this video I want to introduce a technique that will make it easier to teach your horse to go froward. Andrew McLean talks about this technique of whip tab in the training of horses and I wanted to add some extra tips to that. My focus, as usual is on the rider’s position and so I want to make sure that if you use this whip tab technique that you are not blocking your horse unintentionally at the same time as you ask for forwardness.
