Tim is one of the country's foremost showjumpers and trainers, having represented Great Britain on over 50 occasions. He is a board member of British Showjumping and has served as Chef d'Equipe of the British team.
Part four of our Train with Tim series shows you how to ride a stride building on the sessions where we judge distances and adjust the horse’s stride.
Ride the Stride
Set up two caveletti five horse strides (plus half a stride for take off and landing, 22m/72ft) apart. Then jump them in a good, rythmical canter and count how many strides your horse takes. Let Tim explain the rest in this video…
When jumping a combination it’s important to stay balanced throughout. You’ll notice that I don’t tip my body too far forward or sit up completely. I try to maintain a light seat and stay in ‘neutral’ all the way down my body, allowing my knees and ankles to act as shock absorbers.
Mary & Emily will be sharing and demonstrating their tips from the top, including jumping advice that really works, flatwork tips for every horse, and secrets behind their eventing success. Plus, you'll get to see their best horses live in action! #RideLikeAKing
