Empowering Equestrians to Train their own horse with 100% Force Free & Horse Friendly methods

In another blog I gave tips for riders who are visual learners. If your learning style is more kinesthetic/tactile you may benefit by practising the test by ‘riding’ it. You can practise without your horse.

Kinesthetic/tactile learners

You can learn the test by ‘riding’ it by yourself to get the feel. Make a little arena by printing the area letters and put them in the right order on the floor in your living room. Or, if you like to be a little more crafty or don’t have enough space inside, tape them on wooden BBQ skewers so you can practise on your lawn. If you want to practise a Caprilli test you can make jumps out of (broom) sticks

Now you can ride the test by ‘walking’, ‘trotting’ and ‘cantering’ in your living room arena or in your garden. If you have to memorize a quadrille test this would be a fun thing to try with your group. It is a very efficient way of learning._indoor_arena-hippologic_tactile_kinesthtic_learners

Auditory learners

If you are the type of learner that is more auditory you can record yourself or your instructor reading the test out loud.

You can also try out a combination of the visual, tactile and auditory ways of learning to see what works best for you.

Have fun and good luck riding your next dressage, Caprilli or quadrille test.
