Hunter rider Sandy Ferrell shares tips to fix your position to ride more effectively, plus veterinarians' advice to find the best diet for your horse.

Your hunter is the one being judged in the show ring, but you are his dance partner. If you’re doing unattractive things with your body, it ruins that visual ballet. If you have a solid position, you can help show off your horse to his best advantage. You also can show him off by making sure he looks his best. A main factor in that is a diet that meets his nutritional needs.

In this issue:

• Hunter rider Sandy Ferrell offers four exercises to improve common rider position problems so you can ride more effectively.

• Two veterinarians explain how to find the best combination of dietary energy sources to meet a horse’s individual nutrition needs.
