Riding in Your Mind's Eye - DVD 1
Riding in Your Mind's Eye - DVD 1: Getting Started - Perfect Practice for Dressage Riders 1: Getting
Started - Jane Savoie shows how "riding in your mind's eye" will help you reach your personal best. She reveals the secret that
elite athletes have known for years - the power of visualization to affect performance. Jane's premise is that practice doesn't
make perfect; "perfect practice" makes perfect. By reprogramming your mind with correct mental pictures - that is, vivid images
of movements ridden well - you can etch the right pictures in your mind's eye. This first DVD explores the rider's position and
movements and exercises required of the Training Level horse, including: alternating from rising to sitting trot, upward and
downward transitions, 20-meter circles, shallow loops in the trot, changes of direction, and transitions from medium walk to free
walk and back again.
"Savoie eloquently describes the aids a rider must use to achieve the desired movement in easy-to-understand detail." USA Equestrian
"With Savoie as a guide, viewers can gain a firm image of the proper way to ride the various movements and can capture these images in their minds to
take with them during schooling and even competitions." USDF Connection
