Peter explains the parts of a position on the flat that he feels are fundamental to master before moving into more advanced work. 

Learn different exercises without your stirrups to practice to help you achieve a quiet position. 

One of our most overlooked aids, Peter explains how your seat can play a huge role in quieting your ride, and explains several exercises to practice. 

Learn how to use warm-up jumps to assess your position and get yourself in control of your body before you go on course. 

Bounces are fantastic exercises to learn how to keep yourself still while your horse moves underneath you. In this lesson, Peter takes you through his favorite configurations, and explains what you should strive for when doing them yourself. 

Once you've mastered bounces, move on to gymnastics to maintain a quiet position in between jumps 

In this lesson, Peter reviews two skillful jump-off rounds, one with Germany's Marcus Ehning and another with America's Mclain Ward. He'll explain some of the things that make these riders so smooth and effective.

In this lesson, Peter will show some practical applications of the concepts he spoke about in Lesson 10. There are 3 exercises demonstrated, all of which can be built according to the space you have available and the height you are comfortable and safe jumping. Remember: These exercises are not so much about size as they are technicality!
