Shorten Your Reins

I say it often enough, I even put it on a t-shirt!

And although I've had a few non-horse people read the t-shirt and think I was espousing some high-falutin' metaphysical zen principle, I really mean exactly what it says: shorten your reins, and then stop hanging on your horse's mouth!

I'm building (and note the present-tense here) this website to help supplement my lessons with my dressage riders at William Woods University. Not a college student? No problem! Join right in. As soon as you shorten your reins.
