  • 3D animation, integrated with actual video footage.

  • Whole new way to demonstrate horse and rider interaction.

  • See exactly what is going on inside the horse and rider's body from all angles.



Have you ever wondered what is actually happening when your instructor observes that you are 'in front of' or 'behind' your horse's movement? Or tries to explain where your body should be positioned in order to get the best response from your horse? Well this DVD aims to show you this and more! Using the advanced techniques of 3D animation, integrated with actual video footage, this innovative new product literally does add a whole new dimension to demonstrating horse and rider interaction. Unlike diagrams and videos which are two dimensional, you can now see exactly what is going on inside the horse and rider's body from all angles, at standstill and during movement.

This DVD focuses on the rider's position and aids while the horse moves through a series of transitions and simple school movements. You can see how subtle alterations in the rider's position can affect the horse's balance and performance, this is shown in its purest form by comparing the actions of the rider's skeleton to the corresponding reaction of the horse's skeleton.

By demonstrating the principles of riding in such a visual manner, the DVD does not have to rely on technical theory to get the message across: the aim is to be both educational and inspirational! Riders and trainers of all ages and levels of experience will be fascinated by this completely new approach to understanding horse and rider interaction.

Chapters include:
  • The Balanced Position
  • Balance in Motion
  • Balance in the Walk
  • Trot
  • Canter
  • Transitions
Approx running time 35 mins
Also compatible with US / Canadian DVD players
