In this workshop, we're focusing on leg yields! Leg yields are a really wonderful suppleness exercise that help to loosen your horse in the back and engage the inside hind leg at the same time. Before you start working on your leg yields, it is important that your horse is round and moving forward. Then, the leg yields can really help to get your horse more supple, straight, and to help them find a longer and more powerful stride. In this workshop, I've included a ton of different leg-yield exercises you can do with your horse - from introducing the leg yield on the ground to using leg yields to improving your canter 1/2 pass zig zag!
Regardless of your level, whether you are new to riding or already competing in dressage, you will get specific step-by-step exercises for you to incorporate into your riding routine, plus you’ll learn the theory behind each exercise. Exercises are rated as Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced so there really is something for everyone.

- A clear structure for your training and your rides

Dressage riding is very much a process and requires consistent training to make progress. This workshop can give you the tools for just that!
Amelia Newcomb Dressage works to develop a trusting and confident relationship between horse and rider. Using elements from both natural horsemanship and classical dressage, Amelia creates a holistic approach to dressage training that adapts to fit the needs of each individual horse and rider. Starting with basic groundwork and progressing to the Grand Prix, Amelia emphasizes trust, understanding, and relaxation for both horse and rider.
Amelia also enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge and experience with her students. “I have been blessed with many great teachers in my career and I hope to help each and every one of my students develop a connection and solid relationship with their horses.” A passionate dressage trainer, with a goal of reaching and helping a larger number of riders than one-on-one in-person training allows, Amelia has expanded her training program to the online community.
“I see online dressage training as the future. Not everyone is lucky enough to have an amazing dressage trainer in their backyard. Amelia’s Dressage Academy provides monthly workshops and in-depth masterclasses, which can provide a map for progress in your dressage journey!”
