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. Learning to be aware of direction and magnitude in our aids as well as becoming a stable force as a rider is what good riding is all about. The forces of motion tell us how the mechanics are working.
