Topic: Both for riders and horses how we organize our head and neck balance relative to our backs will affect the coordination of the entire body. Learn the difference between how horses need to use their heads and necks as stabilizing mechanisms while developing balance in their back and hindquarters – much like humans need to use their arms as stabilizers while trying to gain balance. Understanding the importance of head/neck use as part of soundness helps us better understand how to use the reins and how to work with horses through the reins and bit without causing damage.
