This will include starting to learn lead changes, turn on the forehand, turn on the haunches, sidepassing, roll backs, and sliding stops.

English Riding:English riding is the most common type of riding all over the world.  English riding requires the rider to use both hands with direct contact on the horses mouth.  English riding requires coordination of legs, hands on the reins and blance to control the horse. This can be tough at first, until these actions become second nature, but make a student more versatile.
