Useful exercises, Jane, thank you! You are very clear in your explanations and emphasis - valuable hints and techniques for all of us. I think I'll book some lunge lessons!

What a fabuloust video. I'd love to get one of these down here in New Zealand! Off to practice on my Swiss Ball and hoping it doesn't buck me off :-)

I didn't realize that about the point of doing exercises! I'm going to work on that tomorrow. Thanks so much!!

Where can we go to use this machine? It would be such a great help.

Another fantastic lesson. Thank you Jane, and thank you Kaitlyn. The gift of making things simple, such as wearing a stiprd shirt to check for straightness is something that the least of us can use. By showing what errors to watch for and anticipate, and then how to guard against them, you make the exercises of greater value. Thank you again.

Wow! I have wanted some exercises to help develop my independent seat and these are what I need. I don't have a 'Rocky' so I am making use of my Sharper Image horse exerciser until I can afford a real Equiciser. My mare is really patient, too, so I can practice on her after using the exercises. Thank you so very much!

I've had my Equicizer, Tango, for 2 years. I can't tell you how much riding him has helped me get stronger in my core and more flexible in my hips.

Jane, you are such an amazing teacher. I wish I could get lessons from you everyday. And Rocky well, what more is there to say about him!!!!

I only get to ride on the weekends. I always feel that I waste Saturday trying to review what I practiced the week before. I NEED an Equicizer so I can ride all week and really take advantage of my weekend lessons.

Both videos are wonderful..thanks for the very clear explanations. My trainer had me on the lunge just yesterday to work on my position. Every barn should have an equicizer!

These vide os are fantastic. They are so useful and well done in explaining the techniques as well as showing the errors one is apt to make or prone to. I was taught in these things many years ago, but most people today are not. They provide good basic instruction as well as serving as a good refresher or reinforcement for any rider.
Thank you for developing and making available such useful and well done instructional riding videos. I hope that you will develop more of them.
Kindest Regards,
Robert N. Pettit

These tips are amazing! I can't wait to get on a horse and try out the advice. Thank you Jane, Rocky, and Caitlin!

I agree! How brilliantly simple to wear a striped shirt so you can "self-check"!...And I love how doing the exercises on the Equicizer lets you improve your skills without worrying about getting bucked off or run away with! Good Boy, Rocky!!!

I will view Video 1 and 2 frequently to refresh my memory - both mental and muscular. Great instructor your are, Jane.

I want a Rocky!!!!!!
May 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJenn S.
Thx SO much for the exercises!! Q for Jane or other commenters - Thoughts on alternatives if our barn does not have an equiciser? My rocking chair is a little low, and I think an exercise Ball might also be a bit low...
May 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDeborah A
These exercises are great! I wish I had learned them years ago!!!!!
May 27, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBilly B.
Yeah! Rocky is pretty cool! He's an easy keeper too. Doesn't eat or poop and has a great work ethic!! ;-)
