The Evolution of the Lower-Leg Position promo image

The Evolution of the Lower-Leg Position

Jim Wofford explains how the classic lower-leg position and the way we ride over fences have evolved from something quite different.

Riding over ground poles and very small jumps is a great way to polish your skills over fences. Here, Skidmore College senior Ursula Green is demonstrating excellent form on Tonic, or "Timmy," an 11-year-old Hungarian Warmblood. She rode a great track to arrive at this flower box straight and centered. In the air, she’s already focusing her eyes on the ground pole ahead of her, ensuring that they’ll land and continue to it on the correct track, while also maintaining the left lead. Timmy’s workmanlike expression illustrates the confidence and "no big deal" attitude these exercises help to develop. | Amy K. Dragoo
