[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text animation_loading=”no” animation_loading_effects=”fade_in”]

Purpose of the Leg Yield

  • To teach your horse to respond to the lateral aids.
  • Develops the ability to move forward and sideways at the same time
  • To straighten your horses spine
  • To supple the horse
  • To assist with initial straightening for other more advanced movements

Dressage Training Leg YeildsThe Leg Yield with a Half Circle

The Leg Yield with a Half Circle.  You can try this exercise  at the walk, and trot. I recommend starting at the walk  so you can learn the exercise and teach it to your horse.

To begin get your horse stepping out and in front of your leg.  What this means is that he is traveling forward and a nice even pace not slowing down or speeding up.  And that you are not nagging him along with your leg.  If he won’t go forward willingly make a correction let him move forward then wait.  If he tries to slow down again ask with a soft aid to send him forward and if that does not motivate him repeat the stronger aid until you get the response you want which is a nice forward horse that listens to  soft aids and does not need to be nagged to keep moving forward.

Dressage Training Leg YeildsAs you approach the corner start your first Leg Yield come across the short side of the arena, half halt before the turn, then ride forward into the Leg Yield.  The Leg Yield is a movement where you ask your horse to move forward and sideways at the same time.

Dressage Training Leg YeildsHands:
Using your inside aids (in this example we are assuming you are tracking to the left and your left hand is on the outside of the arena). Use your outside rein or left hand by gently applying pressure on the rein looking for flexion in the neck. (Only enough bend to see his inside eyelashes) Then use your inside rein or right hand to control the degree of flexion and the speed of your horses pace.

Legs:
To keep your horse forward and straight you apply your outside (left) at the girth encouraging your horse away from the rail by applying pressure and to help support the slight bend in your horses entire body. Use your inside (right) leg to send your horse forward and to control his hind end.

Dressage Training Leg YeildsSeat:
Your seat needs to stay soft and open allowing your horse to step up under and slightly across.

Eyes:
Look where you are going.

Start with a short line to X and look for a few steps when you are successful reward your horse by sending him forward into a circle or straight ahead. Try the exercise in both directions. As you progress you can make your leg yield longer across the arena looking for more lateral steps each time. But always remember to to walk forward if you get stuck.

 

Ride smart and quit before you get to tired and things get sloppy. You want to end on a go note and only attempt what you can actually get done. Remember you can ride again tomorrow.

How do you want your beer delivered? Beer, Horses…… Its Friday! Every year in June happens in the small town of Brück (Germany, Brandenburg) a festival for friends of coaches pulled by heavy horses. This meeting of coach drivers is initiated by the brothers Haselof. In the year 2008 there was a parade of beer wagons from many German breweries. The event is named “Titanen der Rennbahn”
