Peter Wylde's Flatwork Non-Negotiables Training Program

 

Become More Confident in Your Flatwork

The best riders in the world look as if they are doing nothing in the saddle. That fine-tuning and refinement comes from practice on the flat, which does the double duty of strengthening the horse’s body while also reinforcing the relationship between horse and rider. In this Training Program, Peter Wylde shows you his go-to flatwork warm-up and some foundational exercises that will benefit any rider, and create a more rideable, flexible, and sound horse.

In this video lesson, Peter shares his thoughts about the value of flatwork, and how it contributes to not only a more successful horse, but a sounder horse long term. 

In this first of several Guided Rides,  Peter lays out the basics of proper flatwork, emphasizing forwardness, straightness, changes of direction, and contact with the outside rein.

This video demonstration accompanies your next Guided Ride - Simple Pole Exercises, and shows you what each exercise should look and feel like before attempting them yourself. 

In this Guided Ride, Peter takes you through simple yet effective pole work exercises to further practice your adjustability and suppleness as it more directly relates to work over fences. 

In a series of video lessons from Peter Wylde's Equestrian Masterclass, "Peter Wylde's Rideability Toolkit", you'll go through his favorite warm-ups and exercises for rideability, as well as trouble shooting some common flatwork challenges like spookiness in the corners or heaviness in one rein.
