Feeling Your Diagonals

It can be difficult to feel instead of look to see if you are on the correct diagonal at the posting trot. In this video Bernie Traurig takes the frustration out of missed diagonals by teaching a rider on a lunge line to feel the diagonal by closing her eyes, focusing on the rhythm of the trot at both the sitting and posting trot.

Video Credits: Bernie Traurig, Saundra Price, “Machiavelli” owned by Saundra Price, filmed at “Hunter’s Hideaway” owned by Jo Cho Astani.

    Cori Christmann

    Originally from Canada but now living in beautiful sunny Southern California, Cori is the daughter of a trainer, so she was practically born and raised on a horse. She spent her junior years showing non-stop in the hunters, equitation and jumpers, while also helping with the family business (coaching students, training horses, mucking stalls you name it). She has learned a lot over the years from some amazing horsemen and women and has had lots of experience with different types of horses and students of many abilities.
