How to Ride a Horse in the Western Style : How to Transition a Horse from Halt to Jog Western Style

August 12, 2019


Hi, I’m Kelli on behalf of Expert Village
I’m going to show you some tips and techniques that I use when using transitions in the western
style riding. Now we are going to get her to move from the halt to the jog. So this
is going to apply a little bit more of a kick than we would if we where going to a walk.
So we are just going to pick up a little bit on her, do a little kick and a little cluck
of encouragement to go forward. So again a little squeeze like I would give her, like
I was asking her to go into the walk to the halt. We want her to lift right into it, we don’t
want her to go off in a walk and take a lot of steps in between there. We want her to
lift right into her jog.
So again a little kick, a little cluck, get her to lift right into that jog to the halt.
So that is how you would want to transition from the halt into the jog.

  1. The horse doesnt look crippled. the trot is a two beat gate. u can clearly see the lady bouncing with the horse in a two beat patteren. now is the horse was doing a cheating jog. there would be no bounce of the rider.
