They may train well at home, answering the questions asked of them, but once under increased pressure in a competitive environment be unable to perform at the highest level. A separate study found that 84% of horses that were examined showed signs of IAD, meaning their athletic ability and overall wellbeing was compromised – read about this research in our June edition.

Gaby Lucas Talks Leg Yielding

In our September issue we talk to Equithème sponsored International dressage rider Gaby Lucas, on developing leg yielding with a young horse.

Suffolk based Gaby, has a wealth of experience competing for Great Britain in the Pony, Junior and Young Rider European Championships and is now progressing up the levels in her dressage career.

Leg yielding can help to develop your horse’s lateral suppleness and is one of the most basic of lateral movements. The movement is particularly useful to young horses, helping them to develop their ability to move away from the leg effectively whilst ensuring that the rider uses the correct aids and leg positioning to influence the horse.

See September edition for full on-page tutorial.
