Question
hello sir, while riding a horse, why should i keep my spine straight and shoulders little back?

Answer
HI -- THAT HELPS THE HORSE FEEL MORE CONFIDENT UNDER YOU WHEN RIDING . THE HORSE GETS SIGNALS FROM YOUR HANDS AND FROM YOUR LEGS TO DO CERTAIN THINGS YOU WANT THE HORSE TO DO. BY KEEPING A GOOD SEAT ON THEIR BACKS YOU SEND INFO TO THE HORSE.  THANKS Ed Hess

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
