Quote from Bent Branderup: "A good hand is searching for information. A trusted hand is given information." In this educational video, Bent Branderup is explaining the traditional perspective of the rider's hand in practice and throughout the history of the old masters. To outline the content in one sentence: It is not the bit doing the work". But what is doing the work, and how are reactions, aids and biomechanics connected? This video offers you as well an deeper insight in the biomechanical influence of the horse as about the abillity of gathering information through the reins and the bit. The academic way of pedagogics in teaching horses the correct correspondance to the different aids you can give with the help of the rider's hand does not fall short. Bent Branderup is not only showing examples how to explain it to your horse in riding, but also already from the ground and in groundwork without even using a bit. Enjoy!
