“I still use Sally Swift’s visual of how a rider should sit.”

Janet Foy is an FEI/USEF dressage judge, popular clinician, and author of the bestselling DRESSAGE FOR THE NOT-SO-PERFECT HORSE and new book DRESSAGE Q&A WITH JANET FOY. She shared this CENTERED RIDING “aha” moment in honor of our 30th Anniversary:

CenteredRidingTree“I still use Sally Swift’s visual of how a rider should sit—like a tall pine tree in the forest. From the waist up, sitting tall and seeking the sun, and from the waist down, stretching deeply to find the water below the surface.”

Share your own CENTERED RIDING  memories and “aha” moments online and tag them #CenteredRiding30! And remember, all CENTERED RIDING books and DVDs are 30% off, the entire month of November.

Trafalgar Square Books, the leading publisher of horse books and DVDs, is a small, privately owned company based on a farm in rural Vermont.
