Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

5 minutes a day is all the time you need to achieve: • Better balance in the saddle • Improved body control from head to toe • Increased influence with your seat • Flawless leg position and subtle aiding • Quieter, softer hands and contact your horse can trust • Less physical stiffness, tension, and riding-related pain • Confidence in your ability to communicate with your horse! PLUS, in just 5 minutes you can improve a horse that's: • Unwilling to go forward or "dead" to the leg • Hollow-backed, high-headed, or above the bit • Heavy on the forehand and unbalanced • A chronic "puller," "leaner," or "head-tosser"! Start or end your riding sessions with Wendy Murdoch's 5-Minute Fixes, and you'll be amazed how quickly you can replace old habits with new ones, get out of your "riding rut," and transform what you can't do into what you can do…naturally, capably, comfortably, and consistently alongside a happy riding partner—your horse.

Synopsis:

Spending days or months correcting bad riding habits or positioning faults in the saddle is not a logical choice in todays fast-paced society, and this timely training manual provides a quick fix for 50 common mistakes. With step-by-step instructions and illustrative color photos, this guide demonstrates simple solutions for riding problems that can be completed in 5 minutes or less. Whether troubleshooting, adding polish, or addressing specific issues—unsteady hands, inconsistent thigh contact, weak seat at the canter, unstable two-point position—comprehensive fixes are presented based on sound bodywork principles from Centered Riding and Feldenkrais.
