Mark Butler Foundation Series: Simple Steps to a Better Riding Position

Mark Butler Foundation Series: Simple Steps to a Better Riding Position

This is the first lesson in the Mark Butler Foundation Series and it focuses solely on the rider's position, with simple sculpting techniques to help you improve your overall riding posture. You'll work towards developing a blueprint position in the halt, walk and sitting trot.

This lesson will involve removing your stirrups and holding your reins in one hand at halt and walk, so please make sure that you're comfortable to do this on your horse before riding with this lesson. You may find it helpful to have a helper on the ground. Again, if your horse is happy for you to do so, you will find riding with a whip useful for one of the posture exercises.

Your trainer for this lesson is Mark Butler, a former National Dressage Champion and dressage trainer. To find out more about Mark please click here.

The session is 23 minutes and 8 seconds in length, and is designed to be listened to whilst you are riding your horse.

You should ensure that you and your horse are warmed up before starting this lesson, and only listen to Sound Schooling audio lessons in a safe, enclosed area.
