Finding The Sweet Spot Of Healthy Biomechanics – Arena 4
Karen’s demonstration at Horsemanship Showcase will explain how to improve how your horse moves, in a way that works with your horse. You will get an introduction to the concept of Finding The Sweet Spot, including the prerequisites, the ingredients, and how to do it. You will also be led through a quick simulation so you can experience it in your own body, and will see three examples of finding the Sweet Spot with three different horses. This is one of Karen Rohlf’s most popular concepts and has helped students and horses of all levels and disciplines enjoy the process of learning the basics of dressage.
