Safety is one of the most important topics in eventing. The experts agree that good training of horse and rider is the best prerequisite for safe cross-country riding. According to Chris Bartle, eventing coach and veteran international rider in both eventing and dressage, success in the sport is based on the following: the position of the rider (posture, balance, seat, legs, and hands), communication (trouble-free connection to the horse's mouth), a sense of speed (rhythm and length of stride), the adherence to line and balance, and proficient mental skills (positive attitude, trust, and concentration). This DVD will school you in:

  • How safe seat positions can help you ride successfully through the cross-country course.
  • Which five cross-country seat positions should be known by every cross-country rider.
  • How you can sit in balance with your horse both before and after the jump.
  • Which are the most common seat errors and how you can avoid them.
  • How the "oh-crap" position can rescue you and your horse from difficult situations.

Join Coach Bartle for over an hour of enlightening instruction and become a better and safer event rider.
