This morning I read the following quick snippet in an email from Jane Savoie:
I rode with Olympian Robert Dover for many years. One of Robert’s favorite sayings is, “Amateurs ride from movement to movement. Professionals ride from half halt to half halt.” I think those are words to live by.
This evening I squeezed in a quick ride, and remembered her words towards the end. So during our final trot work I worked on riding from half halt to half halt, and what a difference it made in Lance's frame and gait quality!
This evening I read the entire article, but for me, the "quick tip" had as much impact. It was the right message at the right time for the right result. Now to remember it!
