Flatwork training is arguably the most important part in training a horse to respond. It is where the horse will learn to perform under the saddle the same actions they do when free in the field, only now they need to learn to do everything in the order their rider commands.
Flatwork teaches horses obedience, balance, quicker reaction time to riders prompts as well as to stay calm and collect.
For the riders this improves their seat, coordination and feel and will improve the relationship with their horse.
The Performance Programme Flatwork training sessions are taken by Erik Mackechnie and are for all riders regardless of discipline.
