Strategic Riding Lesson Plan

Learn how Karl Cook defines "Strategic Riding" for the purposes of this Masterclass, going into his philosophy about foundations, basics, and why it something isn't adding a positive result to your riding, you shouldn't be doing it. 

Karl takes your through the different levels of a training program, and explains why the bottom level is always the most important. 

Karl explains why a pretty, rigid position is rarely the same as an effective one. 

Why is the canter the most important gait for jumping? Karl takes you through his answer to that question. 

Through a series of exercises, Karl takes you through his method for building and developing a good canter. 

Riding is more than just what happens in the saddle. Karl takes you through his mental tactics to make sure you can stay calm and collected when the need to make split second decisions arise. 

Focus on what to do right before you swing your leg into the saddle to ensure you get the best ride from your horse on any given day. 

What do you do when things go wrong, as they so often do right in the middle of a ride? Karl takes you through his methods to ensure you stay strategic and not panic. 

Karl takes you through real rounds to point out moments of greatness, and moments when things could have gone differently. 

Not every system is the same for every horse or every barn. Learn how to make strategic riding work for you and your unique sets of circumstances.
