Total Saddle Fit Tuesday Video: Freestyle Hill Work

There’s always more than one way to get to the bottom…

While I wasn’t the most “woke” young equestrian, I feel like when I was a kid, no one really bothered to do much additional training or clinics for trail horses. “He’s just a trail horse” seemed to be a common refrain… as though you don’t need a horse who can navigate hills and obstacles, tackle water, know exactly where his feet are going, move laterally and do it all quietly and confidently.

So in that vein, seeing trail training courses and clinics popping up all over the world is wildly encouraging to me: recreational trail riders want well-broke horses too! That said, this fellow’s method for getting to the bottom of this hill may not be trail rider-approved…

Points for creativity though, right?

Go riding!
