Proper Use of the Stick and a Safety Precaution Every Rider Should Know
In this handy free video tidbit, Susan Deal (USHJA Certified Trainer, Judge & Steward) demonstrates the proper use of the stick as a back up to the leg aid or to correct a disobedience to the leg aid.

Susan also gives us a very important safety tip concerning the stick that could prevent a rider from being pulled off their horse.
