The Horse Geeks Podcast – Where we look at horses and riding from the inside out
Topic: Newtons second law of motion states Force = Mass x Acceleration. Force is a vector quality that always has direction and magnitude. How we use our bodies and direct our energy as a force on the back of a horse has a huge impact on the horses movement.
