Level 2 FreeStyle

FreeStyle Level 2 is all about introducing your horse to the Seven Games from the saddle. At this point, ideally you will have played On Line with your horse to the point that both of you are comfortable and confident in your relationship, to the point that introducing the saddle and eventually getting onto your horse’s back is, above all, safe.

As you begin incorporating FreeStyle in your horsemanship routine, be sure to emphasize the Friendly Game – particularly if your horse has never been ridden before.

Rather than just saddling your horse up, hopping on, and riding off into the sunset, it’s important that you begin at Square One: saddling with savvy.
