Self-Carriage is the balanced of strides, resulting in the moments of glory between the contact and the release.
“To create Self-Carriage I drive the horse from behind, rounding his back and lifting him up into my hands. When the horse is in self-carriage the reins will soften like butter and melt into my hands.”
Self-Carriage is not about the horse. Self-Carriage is not about the rider.
Self-Carriage is about the partnership between the horse and the rider. It is this partnership that creates true self-carriage.
