A ton of riders battle to foster run lengthenings with their most memorable level dressage ponies. What follows are 7 fast tips to assist your pony with his lengthenings.
1. THE Guides FOR Run LENGTHENINGS
At the point when you’re prepared to request a vertical progress travtips from working run to a run protracting, apply the guides all the while, as follows:
* Seat: utilize a driving seat, like you’re pushing the rear of the seat toward the front of the seat.
* Legs: press delicately with the two legs to flag your pony to communicate his energy forward over the ground in longer walks.
* Reins: relax your hands a piece forward, however keep a contact with your pony’s mouth, and a curve in your elbows. Try not to ‘discard the reins’.
2. Jog LENGTHENINGS foster gracefulness.
Here is a picture that will assist you with understanding the kind of gracefulness you’re creating when you practice lengthenings with your Most memorable Level pony. Consider your pony’s body an elastic band that can undoubtedly stretch and agreement. Not exclusively will this quality make him more athletic, but at the same time it’s incredibly valuable for all disciplines of riding. Take showjumping, for example. Simply think the number of bouncing issues could be kept away from assuming your pony’s step were effectively movable like this!
3. Keep up with THE Rhythm OF THE Functioning Run
Likewise with most new work, when you start to integrate lengthenings into your preparation From the get go Level, you start in the run. It’s a reward assuming you have a pony that can normally extend his run. Numerous Warmbloods and Arabians have this capacity, yet I’ve worked with a ton of Pure bloods, Connemaras, Morgans, and Quarter Ponies who truly need assistance fostering their jog lengthenings.
On the off chance that you request that your pony extend in the manner I’ve depicted and the rhythm gets speedier on the grounds that he runs with short, quick advances, you want to foster his lengthenings efficiently. Some portion of his trouble might be simply physical. He might come up short on gracefulness and strength that he will acquire in time by essential dressage preparing. However, a contributor to the issue might be that the pony simply doesn’t comprehend that he is to take longer walks in a similar rhythm. He really believes he’s being faithful when he surges off in light of the fact that he feels you close your legs, and he answers enthusiastically by promptly proceeding.
I frequently find that I can assist him with understanding that he is to protract his steps without accelerating, by requesting the run lengthenings while going up slopes. When he gets the thought, I return into the ring and check whether he can move this idea of extending in a similar beat fair and square balance.
Now and again I accomplish something strange with the pony that will in general stimulate his run rhythm when requested to extend. Since it requires investment to foster the run stretching, I go out in a major field, or I go as far as possible around the ring and adjust the corners so I don’t need to dial back for them. To begin with, I take up a heavier contact than ordinary. Along these lines, I can briefly go about as the pony’s fifth leg and deliberately support him so he doesn’t lose his equilibrium. Then I request a protracting in posting jog. While presenting on the run, I rise extremely high and remain in the air a small portion of a second longer than ordinary. I imagine that I can hold the pony in the air with my body. Furthermore, to my eye, I picture him drifting over the ground with his feet never contacting the ground.
I request that my pony give me an increasingly great exertion and in the long run one of two things will occur. The first is that he understands that his legs can’t go any quicker, and he ‘shifts into overdrive’ and takes a few longer, more slow advances. As of now, I promptly stop, acclaim him, and let him stroll on a free rein.
