Hello and welcome to this weeks episode brought to you by and Grand Prix rider Natasha Althoff. Dressage Mastery is an easy to follow system helping riders all around the world improve their riding.

So how do you ride sitting trot without moving? Natasha remembers the early days just bouncing! Your ankles act as your shock absorbers, they take that moment of suspension.

Make sure that you do not grip with your knees because in fact this will take you out of the saddle. You need to plug into the horse with your 2 seat bones. The use of your stomach is vital. In the early days using this, your stomach should be sore after a session. It's a pulling in of the bellybutton to the spine and a flattening of the lower back.

We hope you enjoy this video. If you the way Natasha explains and trains be sure to check out

Until next time, happy riding
