Train Your Own Horse with Stacy Westfall

Aug 30, 2023

It is remarkable how well horses can learn to read a rider's seat cues. 

In this podcast, I explain how I use my seat cues to communicate with my horses, including how these seat cues can naturally develop. 

A seat can:

  • Follow the motion
  • Get ahead of the motion
  • Get behind the motion
  • One hip bone can be more on top of the saddle-to the left or right
  • One hip bone can be leading or behind

These can be used in many combinations to communicate in detail with your horse. 

In this podcast, I start at the riders' head, and talk all the way down to the seat bones. Listen first to get and idea…and the second time, sit on a chair, ball or a tolerant horse and follow along with my descriptions.
