Part 2: Sally Swift applies her techniques to the sitting trot, circles, canter, lateral work, and jumping. Sally Swift is widely acclaimed for her innovative teaching philosophy, which stresses body awareness, the value of "soft eyes," proper breathing, centering and balance. Her methods enable horse and rider to achieve harmony - working together naturally - without pain. Unlike traditional trainers, Sally does not believe in forced training techniques that cause stiff bodies and tense riding. Instead, through the use of vivid, unusual, and highly creative images, plus a thorough knowledge of human and equine anatomy, this wise and inspiring teacher enables the conscientious equestrian to reassess habitual responses in order to ride in natural positions, break through frustrating plateaus, and achieve ever-rising goals with comfort, vitality, and precision. In these two programs, Sally Swift demonstrates, with the help of several of her students, her Centered Riding techniques. She shows how, by being aware of your body, you can make riding more comfortable and freeing for both you and your horse. "...(programs) to study and watch again and again, each time picking up something new...you feel as if you can conquer a whole new world of riding." -- EQUUS
